Well, de kogel is door de kerk/the news has come; my kidney transplant will be November 14 at 5:30am at UCSF. They are going to take out both my kidneys because otherwise there is no space to put in my new supersonic kidney. The surgery will take 6-7 hours and I'll be in the hospital 5-7 days.
I am part of a chain of 18 people (9 donors & 9 recipients) who will undergo surgery. My donor – whom I don’t know – has the operation also in UCSF as does Brenda my original donor, but we don’t match. Her kidney will be flown to some place unknown in USA, a big day for many people.
I am excited, curious, tender and much more! I met with my transplant team last week, which was very affirming. Especially, meeting my surgeon. Which is crucial. He felt like deep Presence itself. What more can I ask for? All is divinely orchestrated.
I would love your prayers and candles lit so we all everywhere can enjoy the light and be touched by the unfolding healing presence of Her.
At home the recovery will be 6-8 weeks. That means I won’t be working till January 2018. I’ll be offering the monthly online satsang and most of the weekly online meditations. For sure I’ll be offering with my new kidney the Mexico retreat, 'Silence Dancing' in March of 2018!!! Please come and join, the early bird price ends December 1st.
I want to speak a little bit more about the transplant. One of the beauties for me in this experience is that about 40 years ago my mom died from this dis-ease and I feel I am completing what she never was able to do and with that bring healing to the lineage I was born into. Funny, how we have our family lineage and then also our spiritual lineage, all crucial in this human divine life here on Planet Earth.
A very sweet experience over the last about 9 years people kept asking me or telling me how happy they are that I am pregnant. I would always respond with, “Yes, I am pregnant with myself”. That is exactly how it feels, I am giving birth to mySelf. That gives me intense happiness. Can’t quite explain that.
Please know I am well taken care off. If you want to know how I am doing please check for updates the blog on my website (Knowing me it won't be a daily thing).
