Donating on Dec 8, 2011
« on: November 22, 2011, 10:21:07 AM »
Dear folks:

I will be donating my RIGHT kidney as a non-directed donor on December 8th.  I am excited but also nervous.  I have so much to get done before the surgery (3 birthdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, work, etc.)  I am not sleeping well.  Is this normal?   Please send prayers.  Thanks so much.

     Best wishes and prayers for your surgery.
     Some donors feel more nervous than others, but it IS major surgery so there is nothing unusual about having some anxiety.
     Some donors have asked a place of worship to include them in their community prayers, or to include them in a prayer service.
     Lots of helpful tips for your hospital experience at www.kidney.org/transplantation/livingdonors/infotips.cfm

Thanks so much for your support and prayer.  I know you folks don't know me, but God does.  Please pray for a successful donation and most of all for the recipient.
