WE HAVE A MATCH!!!!!!


ERIC IS GOING TO HAVE HIS KIDNEY TRANSPLANT!!!!!!!

We found out this morning that Eric and his dad are a match! We will go to "committee" on February 11th and the transplant will most likely be sometime in March!

Not only did the Lord answer our prayer for a donor...not only did He answer our prayer that Eric's dad be the donor...but He even answered our prayer for it to happen in March!!


It's kind of silly, but Eric's parent gifted us hotel accommodations in Vegas to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary in May. And my frequent flyer miles for trips to Ghana will buy us two plane tickets. The only thing was we REALLY didn't want to have to deal with dialysis in Vegas, and also worried about if the transplant was only shortly before the trip we would have to cancel. After the transplant Eric has to go to the doctor every day for a while, then every other day, then three times a week, etc. With the transplant being in March we should be far enough in the process by May that we can take our 4 days together in Vegas!!!!!

SO HAPPY!!!

How wonderful! And it sounds like a little trip just the two of you a couple of months later will be the perfect way to celebrate!
