Hi. My name is Kristina. I'm 21 and have Polycystic Kidney Disease. I was diagnosed with PKD on 2/21/04 and was lucky enough to receive a successful transplant a year and a half after signing up for the Transplant List, on 12/3/05. I did have a rejection episode on 7/15/08 due to certain circumstances. Luckily, the doctors were able to save 30% of the transplanted kidney. All I can say is "so far, so good". Just hope it stays that way!

My husband, James, is a Reservist in the US Marine Corps. His MOS, or Military Occupational Specialty is Telecommunications Repairer (2847). He graduated from Boot Camp on Parris Island on 2/22/08 and is currently stationed at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn. He goes there one weekend per month and does Active Time, out of state, two weeks per year. Right now, he's a Lance Corporal (LCpl.) and he's working on getting a promotion to Corporal (Cpl.) and earning his "blood stripe". I'm very proud of him!

Currently, we're taking things a day at a time, as they come. We were married on March 1st, 2008. I'm really happy I have him home for the time being, but a deployment might be in the future considering he volunteered for the Active List. If he does wind up going out there, I can only hope he stays safe, tries to keep in touch every chance he gets, and returns home to me ALIVE.

Hello Kristina,

Making friends is something I absolutely love to do. So glad to have you as a new friend. I was a military wife during the Vietnam war. It makes life a little more difficult. I hope it is helpful to know that you have friends here to help with some of the health issues. Take care!
