  • I need all your prayers!

    A (not so close) friend is being tested on the 17 Jun to see if we are a match.
    I do not want to be optimistic .. but I just can't help it.

    She is in very good health. Not overweight. Has had all her kids. AND the same blood group as I am.

    I really wish that this is it.

    IF she is a match I do not have to start dialysis but have a transplant (I hope) I have to loose 9kg. Here in SA it takes about 9 months to a year to arrange a non-relative transplant.

    PEOPLE this is so exciting..... I just hope that she is a match.

    I will keep you posted.

                    Woweeeee! That is great and very exciting!!! I'll be thinking of you. That is tomorrow. Hopefully they won't keep you waiting too long to find out. Oh boy, I hope she is a match. And what an incentive to lose the weight! I know you will find it very easy to do when a transplant is dangled in front of you!!! Please let us know.

                          Thanks everyone for your well wishes! It's SO exciting.
                          We both went to the transplant team's offices this morning and a few tubes of blood was taken from both of us.

                          Belinda (the transplant coordinator) was very helpfull and she gave my prospective donor some information.

                          NOW! we wait for 24 hours to see if she is a match and
                          THEN! she has to have more tests done to see if she is healthy enough to donate a kidney.

                          So many things can go wrong.... I have to remind myself constantly.

                          I really hope that she is a match.

                          to be continued ......

                            Des,

                            I join all the rest in sending you my thoughts and prayers that this is the time. A transplant is well worth the wait!
