Pre-donor testing

This is a first for us, but thought it might be a wonderful way to share information and possibly vent about what's going on with us during this time.

We have a friend coming from CA to be tested July 10th. If he matches and is still interested in going through with the donation, we are looking at an October removal of one kidney and December for transplant. The months in between will require dialysis likely at Vanderbilt two days a week.

We've been most impressed and humbled by the strangers and of course friend that have volunteered to be tested, offered prayers and/or thoughts. All of this is what has kept us going during this uncertain time. Thanks to all for that!!!
