Clyde Simms Update: "...I finally feel like me again."

New, comments

An update on the midfielder from the midfielder.

Last week we learned that former D.C. United and New England Revolution midfielder Clyde Simms received a second kidney transplant, this time from longtime friend Katri Hunter. Now we're hearing from Simms post-surgery via Instagram:

My first #WCW goes to this one. Name: Katri Hunter Height: 5'4" Sign: Scorpio Hobbies: horseback riding In all seriousness, Katri has been a huge part of my life since the day we met. A week ago today, she took it upon herself to give me a new life, a fresh start. She gave me one of her kidneys so that I could have a new bill of health! I was on dialysis, skinny as a rail, high blood pressure, feeling lousy most of my days, diet restricted, fluid restricted, you name it. NOW I am off of dialysis, already gained 15 pounds, looking and feeling younger by the day, can eat and drink whatever I want, my mind is clear, but most importantly, I finally feel like me again. I haven't felt this way in about 5 or 6 years. I owe it all to her. I could never repay you Katri. You mean the world to me #kidneys #beadonorsavealife #calvinissmiling #thankful #blessed
