Grand Finale of Quinning4kidneys and Joe's update

Thanks to the National Kidney Foundation for all the support they have given Clay in his crazy 30 days of Backwards half court shots AND all of you wonderful folks who donated! He should blow away his original goal of $1000 which quickly morphed to $10,000 and now is at $20,000--- all to support kidney patients in the USA. There are still a few hours left(until 6pm on Thursday, October 8) and the link can be found at Crowdrise.com or by clicking here or copying this link http://www.crowdrise.com/quinning4kidneys/fundraiser/clayquinn You can see the video on Facebook also. Joe is improving and feeling well enough to start a few small projects around the house. He goes twice a week to doctors at Dallas Transplant Institute for monitoring of values. So far so good. His energy level should increase gradually. And Chelly has returned to work. What an incredible God we strive to serve who created most people with two kidneys and yet we can live and thrive with just one. And then He created humans smart enough and with advanced medicines that allow that extra kidney to be implanted in the side of another human AND it works!! Doing its job to keep the blood filtered, cleaned and balanced. That is INCREDIBLE! God is Good! Thank you ALL for your continued prayers and thoughts and our amazing children Clay, Jill, and Josh for keeping it all real and lite, having fun and helping us heal and taking the initiative in a unique way to try to help others! #blessed
