Thanks everyone! My mom's A-. I'm O+. I would have been a living donor for her, but I'm not a good match. So we wait. It's kinda become my new campaign. Especially being in school to work in surgery.
That's good to hear about your mom Sakura! My mom's 57 & other than the kidney thing, in good health. Rachel & Curlin's first foal's name is Jess's Dream. No news on 12Z's official name. Jack's doing pretty good (fingers crossed). He's lost some weight & is a lot more mobile these days. Back to actively playing with toys and we haven't had to visit the vet since over the winter. I hope he stays healthy. How are your pets?
Olympia-It's okay, I was scared to look into the donor process too. I'm well of age (30), but wrong blood type. And yes, your blood type makes you the "universal donor".
I was so happy for Michael Matz too. Great guy (plane crash survivor who helped rescue others) and wonderful trainer. He seems to really care about the horses and not just the money. I followed Barbaro's story the whole way through & was crushed when his time was up. Such a fighter!
