My friend’s husband is in need of a Kidney transplant. Below is a message from her as well as supporting links. Peter will be getting care in Boston, MA if you are considering being a donor.
Please pass this on!
”My husband Peter Tryba has suffered from chronic kidney disease (CKD) for the past 13 years. The condition is a result of an autoimmune disease called IgA nephropathy. His condition has been managed with medications to lower his blood pressure and keep his kidney function stable. Unfortunately he is now at the end stage of the kidney disease (ESRD) where his kidneys are only functioning at 13%. He will need a kidney transplant from a donor with a matching blood type (He is A+). We will be going to Tufts to meet with the transplant specialists and get put on a list of people waiting for donors. This can potentially take years to find someone. In the meantime, Peter will need to be put on dialysis, 3 days a week, for 3 hours a session in order to help boost his kidneys in eliminating toxins from his body. Peter is otherwise a young, healthy person who has done everything to manage his condition, but now he needs help. He needs a donor. I am willing to donate my kidney to my husband, but we have a 3 1/2 year old daughter and so I feel that I need to be there to care for both of them during this difficult time. The best option is for someone to volunteer. We wanted to let everyone know that this is what we will be going through in the next few months and would appreciate any information, support, guidance, or advice as we embark upon this journey. Thank you,
Rachel & Peter Tryba”

Looks like I need to get my buns to the Vancouver Aquarium, pronto. It’d seriously be a ton of little kids + me mooshed against the glass.
Hi Teechew! <3 I’ve had some trouble with my manufacturer, but with any luck they will all go out friday of next week. I am hoping sooner!
Thanks for your preorders and your patience! <3
HI ZAMMIE we’ll roll around in sake, sushi, and wine then onto the light rail BEFORE YOU KNOW IT.
#TBT! Here’s a Sweetoof sculpture I created during college as part of my thesis project (2007).
Did you know Sweetoof was the very first inki-Jinx character I created? This sculpture was my business card holder during the show. I’m surprised he hasn’t broken considering all the cross-country moves I’ve made, though his paint job is looking a little worn!
