So far so good

January 15, 2014

Many of you may remember the post how I learned about love, I felt it was time for an update on this story. On December 31st, 2013 R got his kidney! We spent New Years Eve celebrating a successful transfer and the fact that my Dad and Auntie were both doing wonderful. I am still amazed at the love and devotion that my family has for one another. I was lucky enough to be part of a surprise for my Mom, Dad and her sister. My Aunt who introduced them was able to fly to SD and ride with us to this big event. Everyone was so happy to see her and glad that she was able to make it for her sisters and R. We are so blessed to have such wonderful role models of what it means to truly care for someone other than yourself!

My Auntie got out of the hospital 2 days after her surgery and seems to being doing very well. She is back in SD and healing up before she returns to work.  My Dad got out on day 5 and is like a new man. It is amazing how quickly this type of surgery can improve ones health. Within the first day my Dad had his color back and looked like nothing even happened. He is still in Rochester doing testing and should be returning home next week sometime. So far so good with the kidney function 🙂 so please continue to keep them in your prayers!

Donation is the best give anyone can give and I know that if I was not at risk for this stupid disease I would be signing up to help someone have a life again! Click here for more information on being a living donor!
