  1. John,
    What does “Make sure that you are a potential kidney transplant” mean? Checking to see that you have two kidneys?

    Good luck!

  2. The term, POTENTIAL Kidney donor just means that the check-in desk will be able to distinguish me from a patient who needs a kidney. I can’t donate unless I pass my physical and psychological tests–am I of sound mind (certainly my psych test will be touch and go :)).
