GFR = LIFE

 

    Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Chris and this is me at Stage 3 CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease). In December of 2017 my diagnoses increased to Stage 4, I was told by my doctor that I would need to begin looking for a transplant as complete organ failure would be soon to come. 

This is not easy for me to say nor share (publicly) as I am usually a very private person. However this situation calls for me to be outside my comfort zone and share my story (and information) with others.

 

    I've created this site to help me spread the message of my need for a transplant, so you will see a lot of post about my personal life and challenges that I am facing. The site will also feature information about being a donor and Renal failure in general, for those of you that would like to find out more about the subject. So come along with me on my journey and feel free to drop me a line.

What to expect,...

So the  year of 2018 has passed and still no solid lead on a viable candidate going into the new year. It's hard to keep positive with 2 years of searching "under my belt" as it were. But moments like Christmas where my daughter puts a smile on my face, help to allevia...

I made it! It was a long tough semester, one that tried to brake me into submission, with all my current adversities. Yet I became stronger, I pushed through and didn't submit.

My unofficial grades this semester is all A's, I doubt that this will change, its just that "...

One thing that frustrates me about living with CKD, is the medication. Taking medicine becomes not only necessary for survival but it's sort of like an unofficial job. If you are at the final stages of renal failure then maybe you can understand where I'm coming from.

Renal failure is a difficult path, especially for those of us in stages 4 & 5. While the road ahead may be difficult and at times (or most times) exhausting, this is not time to lay down and give up. 

You may not be able to do things you enjoy anymore. This does not mea...

My daughter Kira is a very energetic little 2yr old. She loves to play whether it be inside, outside, in the sun or in the rain. Most of the time daddy is willing to accommodate as well. Sometimes though, battling kidney failure can plummet my energy levels and my pati...

Making a joke off a Star Wars title aside, today I'm having trouble with another gout flare up *sigh*. 

This makes the third flare up in a little under 3 months. Before I entered into stage 4 renal failure I may have had 1 in one year. 

More than just a nuisance or painf...

One thing I like to do most, especially with my health failing me, is making memories! A few weeks ago there were a few trucks heading down the road on our usual route home. When Kira saw trucks that look suspiciously like fair attractions, she asked "whats that daddy"...

I haven't done much the past 2 weeks, unfortunately my condition decided to throw some curve balls my way.

The past two weeks have been rough ones, as I was dealing with painful issues that arise when your kidneys start to fail. Namely gout, lower back pain, and tendon/...

It was a nice day yesterday and what better thing to do than get out of the house and go to the zoo!

Lately my daughter loves going to see the animals at the zoo, we've been 3 times in the past 2 months (once to Audubon zoo in New Orleans). I love seeing her get excited...
