For those who regularly read my blog, you may remember my post announcing my recent kidney donation.  I wanted to let you know that the surgery went well for both my recipient and for me.  Now I am back at home resting.  While I do not yet have the energy to get back into my regular blogging, I did want to share this with you.

On Tuesday, I had the pleasure of meeting all donors and recipients involved in the donor chain.  It was so neat to hear each story and how they became involved in kidney transplantation.

We gathered at the Clarian Transplant Unit at Indiana University Hospital on IUPUI‘s campus.  Many of the medical and professional staff members were present, as well.

The story of the donor chain was recorded by the marketing department of Clarian Health Partners, as well as one of Indianapolis’ local new station, WTHR.  If you are interested, make sure to watch WTHR on Christmas Eve at 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. (contingent upon breaking news).  If I receive more information about the airing of the story, I will be sure to post it.
