Today. Today has actually happened. It’s a day I have waited for years to hear. The day we are told that there is a MATCH for Matthew to receive a kidney!! I heard it today. I heard those words be told directly to me.
“We are a match.”
My heart felt like it swelled up all through my chest. It felt like the pressure was going to make it explode. I knew there wasn’t something actually physically wrong. I just lied down in the middle of my bedroom and just tried to breathe through it. I am sure it was mere shock from the news. lol. My entire body just felt so heavy. I was trying to find words to say to continue the conversation but I couldn’t. I just kept giggling and saying, “WOW!”
My friend… a longtime friend that I met through work, is a perfect match for my son. It was confirmed today that SHE is going to donate her kidney to my son!! SHE is going to save my sons life. SHE is going to give LIFE to my son!!!
I am truly in shock. I don’t know how to feel or how to act. I want to jump up and down and scream and yell HALLELUJAH. But then I want to just fall to my knees and cry. Cry tears of relief. Cry tears that I have been holding onto for three years. And just…. cry.
There is so much emotion that I am feeling, I don’t know what else to say. So much going on… its kind of crazy.
Please just keep us all in our prayers.
