I'm a little edgy tonight...

tomorrow is the big day for our donor! She goes for her all day appointment at OSU. She'll meet with the nurse and surgeon.... she'll have more blood drawn.. she'll hear all about transplant and be sent for a chest X-ray and CT Scan of her kidneys. please pray for this to be 'the one'. I really don't think I can take much more waiting. I know people wait longer than this being on the list but I just hope and pray so much that she's a match.

I don't think we'll know anything for a week or so... not even sure exactly how long but I know that once all the testing is done, the pretransplant team will have a meeting to discuss whether she's truly a good match for Neil. I think they only meet on Wednesdays so it could be several weeks before that happens. I really hate wishing away time but when what I'm waiting for is such a huge issue, I can't help but wait for time to pass!

Not much else is new.. just getting ready for thanksgiving. So thankful for this donor who is willing to go thru this for us! I'm also thankful for a 2-day workweek and 5 days off to spend with Neil and the boys!!!

I know I mentioned them before but two of my blog friends, who are brothers, both have donors and dates for their transplants! I've never met them but discovered one of them on Facebook and then from there found the other one: Bruce and Sean. It's been awesome reading about the process they're going through and hoping we are soon in that place of planning for the transplant!

Thanks again for all the prayers and well wishes. I'll update again when I know more! :)

  1. We are wishing away time too. All for good reasons. Do stop and watch the kids. I feel like that's who we loose in the shuffle. Don't get me wrong they live a fine life, but I sometimes feel as if I don't actually see them. The days leading up to this were all about keeping focused so there was no downtime to "think." Thinking is bad for me! Glad you updated-the donor will be fine. I think we should have a girls weekend when this is over-lol.
