Tis The Season For Giving

We are fast approaching the holiday season, specifically two holidays that are all about giving. So I wanted to share with those of you who have followed my blog, that my dear, wonderful friend, Anne, has received a call from her coordinator at the University of Michigan Hospital about donating her kidney!!! It’s a call that Anne has been waiting for and a call that will lead to the gift of life for a dialysis patient.
There isn’t a date set yet for the surgery but whether it be during the holiday season or into the new year…someone out there will consider their new kidney the best Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s present that they’ve ever received!
Please pray and send out good positive wishes for Anne. She’s one of the most selfless, altruistic people that I’ve ever met and I’m proud to know and love her. In case you haven’t checked out her blog yet, please do so. It’s located at: http://anne315.wordpress.com

    Sending prayers up for Anne and her recipient. She truly is amazing. I’m wrapping her up tight in my heart.

  2. PTL! Sending prayers to Anne and the recipient! And from a donor point of view, the surgery isn’t too terrible and there wasn’t much pain. I was out of the hospital with in 4 days and able to move around on my own, slowly, but on my own. She is an amazing person for helping a complete stranger! Sending you well wishes too!

    • Nicole thanks so much for the prayers for Anne! I also appreciate the info about your experience as a donor. Anne and I wondered what the usual hospital stay was for a donor. I’m glad to hear that you were moving around in those 4 days. I hope your mom is doing well and that you realize that, just like Anne, you’re pretty amazing too!
