Thanks for all the sweet comments about Callie Parker. It is very reassuring to hear about the ones of you that have family living with one kidney and doing so well. Thanks so much for sharing!

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.
