Hello, we are posting the first post for 2020. This is the 4th year that Chris has been on the the transplant list. They say that the 5th year is the magic year to get a kidney. We stay hopeful since Chris has stage 5 kidney disease.
At school, just before Christmas, a fellow teacher offered to be tested to see if she could be a match. The extra good news is that her mother had been a transplant recipient and she understands the process. She told me about the recipient program where you can donate, even if you are not a match, then they give your kidney to someone who is a match and in turn moves Chris up the list to the next kidney match. From the way she was talking, I think she may consider doing that for Chris. We just wait and pray.
If all works out, by this summer maybe we will have a kidney and the transplant will take place. Everyone out there, pass on the search and think positive thoughts for our Chris. Thank you!
