The Perfect Match
I would like to thank each and every one of you that has offered prayers, shared this amazing post and donated money. Cindy is my daughter and I'm so grateful to Scott for doing this for her and my family. Thank you all and many Blessing to you and your loved ones.
As a living kidney donor and part of an amazing chain, (see link to story below), it's a wonderful gift your husband is giving you. Best of luck to the both of you. I also want to tell others who might be reading this, that giving a kidney is something that you can do too! It is not nearly as traumatic on the body as it was just a few years ago. They now do laparoscopic surgery. All the donors in our chain were 100% recovered in 3 weeks. I had three tiny pinpoint scars from the surgery, (which have now disappeared a year later), and a 3 inch hardly visible scar where they removed the kidney. It looks like a caesarean scar. So, if you have ever thought about being a donor, do it! And you don't have to be a match. If you are not, they put you in the cross match program, (like I was) and that way you get to help two people! https://www.facebook.com/notes/mike-atkinson/a-chain-of-love-or-how-to-save-five-lives/10156341493165623?comment_id=10156341678930623¬if_t=like
I am able to donate some of my TIME if you need me. I am a sahm, and I am willing to come over and help with cooking or cleaning, or running errands. Please, please let me know if I can help.
I just want to take a minute to thank everyone for their support and prayers. It means so much to us during this period in our lives. Thank you so very much.
