I am 5’4″ and 104 pounds. For years, I have been told, “You are so lucky, you are so skinny!” What folks don’t see, is the small tube coming out by my belly button that allows me to do peritoneal dialysis, three times a day, for 12-18 hours a day. The tube that allows me to fill my abdomen with 2 Liters of solution, because my kidneys failed and I need a transplant. Yeah, so “lucky” to be so skinny. I would gladly take anyone’s unwanted 30 pounds, if it meant I had working body parts!!!!
