5 Years

What strikes me most about being 5 years post transplant is how little the story is mine anymore. 

As soon as I was a match for Dave the kidney was his - it was just a matter of getting it to him. And now he's doing great. The kidney is great. I feel no different than when I had two. 

It was a daunting, terrifying, life changing, profound, inportant, singular experience that will always be part of who I am. But now it's really all about Dave, his kidney, and hopefully many healthy years together to come.
