Lots to be thankful for…

Have you ever had 100 things going on at once and then finally you get everything finished and then you take a deep breath? Well, that's where I am today. Two weeks ago this past Saturday we received the phone call we'd been waiting on for 3 years, we had a kidney! Donna and I just sat in our living room and stared at each other for a few minutes … [Read more...]

Successful -vs- Unsuccessful People

I recently ran across this graphic and thought it presented some valid points, some of you may have already seen it since I shared it on my Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter accounts. As I've mentioned before, the reason I blog these days isn't so much for me to exchange ideas w/ others as it is for me to leave thoughts for my son to ponder when he's … [Read more...]

I've had several people reach out to get an update on Donna so I thought I figured it was time to update the blog with the latest news on our journey toward a kidney transplant.

Our Latest Roller Coaster Ride on the Kidney Transplant List…

Yesterday was pretty much like any other Sunday afternoon, I was online scouting ticket prices for some upcoming business trips when Donna calls me from the grocery store saying she got a phone call from our Kidney Transplant team in Little Rock letting us know to be on alert because a kidney was coming available, everything after that is pretty … [Read more...]

Learning to be Thankful…

Given everything that we've had going on in the Rohrscheib household this past year we've learned several valuable lessons. For me, I know that there's not a more helpless feeling in the world than when your wife calls you crying in pain and you are across the state going into a meeting. I've also learned that having a network of friends to call … [Read more...]

Remembering the Conway Bear!

I was recently asked to share my recollections on one of the craziest things to ever happen in Conway, Arkansas. This silly bear, who is on Twitter as: @westconwaybear, will live in infamy alongside our Conway Toe sucker and the Hendrix Vampire. On facebook I shared the following as an endorsement for my friend, Bart Castleberry, who is the … [Read more...]

Update on Donna’s Kidney Transplant & Dialysis

I've had multiple people ask how Donna is doing so I figured it was time to post an update and bring everyone up to speed. Our last round of lab work revealed that her GFR, or kidney function, had dropped from 11% to 10% and her creatine levels had risen slightly. Throughout this entire process we've been hoping and praying that she wouldn't have … [Read more...]

I promise. I'm excited to say that 'Greater' has … [Read more...]
