My step-sisters husband has been waiting for a new kidney for a long time now, found out this morning that a match was found and he is in surgery as we speak. Otto has Alports disease and that causes kidneys to fail. I am excited for their family but also ask those of you that believe in prayer would pray for Otto as he is in surgery and for a great recovery.

Thanks,

Hope

Prayers to him and family. I lost my uncle in September. He was awaiting a Double Lung transplant. On top of the list for about 14 months. He had Cystic Fibrosis. I know what its like. Praying for a successful surgery and speedy recovery.

Sending out mucho prayers, for him and his family. I just found out an old friend is on dialysis for kidney failure. He is a diabetic so I don't think there will be any transplants. I have been signed up as a donor on my DL for the last 25 years, although now that I am a diabetic I don't know if they can use anything.

Here is an update, surgery went well and the kidney pinked up right away. There is still some bleeding which will hopefully stop soon. Urine output is a little low but will hopefully improve. Prayers should also go out to the donor family who lost a 7 year old boy yesterday but save many other lives with their donations. Thanks all.

Otto is not doing well he has pneumonia and is on dialysis and his kidney may be asleep or rejecting, he also has had to receive several units of blood. To say he is miserable is an understatement. One Dr. wanted to play the wait and see game while others want to do tests. Well the wait and see Dr. was told by my step sister that that is not an option, she is great when it comes to getting the best treatment for her husband. Thanks all for the prayers.

Otto is not good they had to remove the kidney. The sac around the kidney filled with blood and actually cracked the kidney. Since that surgey last night his heart rate has been too high and they have had to keep the breathing tube in and keep him sedated. Thay are trying to pull 10 pounds of fluid off him through dialysis and hope that will give the heart some relief. His pneumonia is a little better, so we have a tiny bit of good news. Thanks all for your care, concern and prayers.

Hope, I am so sorry Otto is not doing well. I went through a nightmare illness with my husband in 2003, I know how stressful this is for you and your step sister. Keep the faith, there are a lot of people pulling for Otto.

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
