My husband is on Kidney dialysis,and has been for about a month know. I guess the question i have is what kind of health do you have to be to get a transplant. I know that me and my brother-in-law can be tested to see if we are a match, The only thing is that i am overweight, also i dont know if i can get my short term disablitlity from work. So i will be off all that time with no pay and also, i wouldnt have anyone to take care of my husband and he is recently recovering from a stroke. View Thread
