About 6-7 months ago I posted about my old friend Patrick Reed. So many of you beautiful souls reached out to help, but to no avail no perfect matches. If any extraordinary one of you out there feel the need to help with O+ type blood, please contact Paula Gull, MD 714-771-8033...Here is his update::::: I had surgery this morning to place a catheter and begin peritoneal dialysis. An overwhelming amount of people came forward to offer to be potential donors. 2 amazing souls made it to the last tests but were disqualified to insure their future health. Insurance will only test 1 person at a time and tests can take 3-4 months and everything is driven by the donor schedule. It's also just a far easier process if I live closer to you. I have a friend left on the list in CA. but that person is not in L.A. Millions of people live and work while perforning dialysis and such will be my fate. I am determined to continue to search for a suitable donor so that I might double my life expectancy. Please consider calling my nurse, if you haven't already, if you live in Southern California and have O+ blood. I hate to be long-winded and I don't want to be a bother, but it's my "job" to get a kidney so that I might be around for my family and lead a more normal life .
