Latest journal entry


Our search is over!  So relieved and thankful to my nephew Tyler and his wonderful, supportive wife Katie.  Tyler just heard he is a kidney match for Mike.  We will update with more details later, but likely will plan surgery toward the end of 2017. Thanks so much to all of you for your willingness to help and your support through this journey- our friends, family, coworkers, local church communities (especially Excelsior United Methodist and Mount Calvary Lutheran who kept us in their prayers over these past few months). Also thanks to our Mayo Clinic providers, Mike's kidney specialists Dr. Somerville (MN) and Dr. Magno (FL), Dr. Blumenfield @HealthPartners, and this PostHope site for giving us a place to share our story-and to for you for caring enough about us to read it.
