Twelve days, 12 hours…. this is the text I received today from a very special friend.
Twelve days, 12 hours… and I will know if this special friend of mine will be the perfect match for Matthew. Yes, that’s right! We may have a kidney donor for my two year old son!!
It was about a month ago when I got a text out of the blue from this friend. We have been friends for YEARS!! We met each other through our work. This friend actually trained me at our job!! This friend has always been special to me and we always had a special connection.
This text I received about a month ago… it said something like, I didn’t want to get your hopes up if it wasn’t going to work out, but I wanted you to know that I tested to see if I was a match to donate to Matthew, and preliminary testing says that I am.
This friend just told me that they went and started the testing process to donate their kidney to my son!! This friend wants to help save my sons life!!!
During this whole conversation I felt dizzy. I didn’t know what to think of it. I didn’t know what it meant that was going on. I had no idea. I mean… I have always dreamed of this moment. I had always wondered how this moment would go down. I KNEW that we would get a donor one day. Whether it be a living donor or a deceased donor. I KNEW the moment would come. And here it was… I was excited, but didn’t want to get my hopes up. I was scared, but I know that God is in control of the whole thing. I was nervous, but not because, again, GOD IS IN CONTROL!! I feel almost like I don’t know how to be. Should I be happy and excited? Or should I stay reserved and like it is not even happening?? Or should I acknowledge it and just be cool and nonchalant about it?? I DONT KNOW!!! lol.
12 days!! please pray for the best news ever for us… 12 days! If it is God’s Will …
