    There has never been a better time to use modern medicine's miracles. I'm sure you will be restored and be able to play better than ever!

    Great news Martin! I didn’t know you were sick either. Dialysis is tough. We have a drummer in our band that had to do dialysis for 5 years befor his kidney transplant. He’s back to 100% now. Good luck to you.

    All the best, Martin! I worked for a dialysis company for many years, and news of a transplant was always good to hear. Dialysis centers are sad places, no one is happy to be there, and very few ever stop going voluntarily. Congratulations, it truly is the first day of the rest of your life!
