Becky I haven't been on Cute lately and can't find the post about Callie Parker but thought I add from my own experience. I have donated a kidney to my son 14 years ago and we are both doing well. My grandson donated to his sister 2 years ago and they are doing great as well. The recipient of course will feel better and the donor feels no change after having recuperated from the operation.
my mother survived for 40 years with only one kidney only to pass away from a totaly different illness its amazing how the body ajusts and she led a normal working life hugs shazells
