Thank you! I will go ahead and just say what is going on. My husband was diagnosed with Kidney Disease in 2009. A month ago we found out that he is now at 11% and will either need a transplant or dialysis. My dad went through initial tests and was a perfect match! but, they found kidney stones and so they cannot take his. His mom wanted to as well, but blood type does not match...and I wanted to test but I know my blood type doesn't match. His best friend is stepping up and getting tested...we know that they have the same blood type but it goes on more than just that.
He goes back to his specialist on the 6th....pretty sure he will be beginning dialysis. While that will keep him alive, I know its going to take a lot out of him. I am just hoping we find a doner soon....so maybe all of this can be done with and he can live a life he deserves.
The good news is he is now active on the transplant list! I live doner is always better..but anything is better than his condition now. He will probably go on dialysis with his next appointment though...on the 11th.
I recently found a female Carolina anole clinging to the side of a bale of paper at work. They are not native to this area and since the weather has been quickly getting colder I brought her home for my son to keep as a pet. She would not survive our winters here in Virginia as it stays cold for...
Any suggestions on how to make lengths of soft cotton clothes line look more like a stiff, plastic coated electrical cord? I've tried soaking it in super salted salt water and drying it, but it needs to be stiffer and less messy.
For me...it's comic books and super hero stuff.. I'm a big nerd and have some cool first appearances of comic book characters.
I unintentionally also have a collection of pinball machines.
What kind of junk tickles your fancy?
I have a 1100 mah, 12vdc battery that I want to switch using a miniature, solid state, SPST relay. How tiny? It needs to fit in the small recesses of a handheld trouble lamp, so perhaps about 10mm x 12mm x 15mm-ish: tiny. I'll be using the battery to power a 12vdc light bulb, so, what, maybe 1-5...
