A miracle happened today....

...and not the kind you're thinking!!

About a month and a half ago, I posted about Medicare's End Stage Renal Disease program and told you that my mother has been on dialysis for almost two years and had just gone on the kidney transplant list within the last month.

We don't know yet how or where it came from, but, my mother got the call last night that they had a kidney for her! After a very long night of travel (they were in VA when they got the call and had to get back to NJ!!) and many tests on the kidney, it was confirmed at 8:00 this morning that it was a perfect match and, as of 5:30 this evening, my mother has a working kidney in her!!!

I am so emotionally drained and have my endometrial biopsy and Glenn's angioplasty tomorrow. But, this is a kind of exhaustion I'll take! In fact, it's wonderful!!!

Oh I am so thrilled for you.

And sad for the donor. (like my Dad). But so glad something good could come out of it.

Good luck to your mom. I'll be thinking about her.
