Hope For Tim's Transplant To Be Soon...

Tim has been a diabetic for 15 years and through that time he has battled setbacks, along with several back surgeries over the years. About two years ago he caught a virus that damaged his kidneys. He has been in and out of the hospital with kidney failure. He is now on kidney dialysis and needs a kidney/pancreas transplant. He will be going to Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle, WA. He is on a short list and has been over there to set everything up. We now wait for the call that will give him a second chance at living a life being healthy and stronger. He has his two boys, Gabe and Bridger, that gives him so much joy and love. They know how sick their Dad is and want him to feel better. As a family, we all pray for the call to come soon.When he does have the surgery he will be in the hospital for at least 10 days and then will have to live there for 2 months. His expenses will add up quickly. Even with medical insurance his out of pockets costs will be alot. This is something that as a family we cannot do alone. You never want to admit that you need help, but then you never expect to be in this situation. Tim's family and friends all know him to be the kindest, loving person there is. He loves to fish, hunt and is a wonderful Dad to his boys. So, please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.....
