Round 2 and Feeling Blessed...

In May of 2011, Nate was scheduled to have his kidney transplant but due to unforeseen circumstances it did not happen. In July of 2011 (a month after we welcomed a baby girl) :) Nate went on Peritoneal Dialysis which he continues to be on today. Peritoneal Dialysis has allowed Nate to do dialysis from home and return to work. We are very thankful for medical technology and it's advancements.

In June of 2012, we received a call from a distant family member Tad wanting to discuss his options for being a donor. During his testing process Tad's father Bing stepped up also wanting to be tested. Thus the process of "Round 2" began...

Both Tad and Bing have been through the testing process and Bing is scheduled to give his kidney to Nate on September 25th. We are excited, nervous but also cautious. We know well the "let down" we experienced last time. So as of right now we have faith things will go as planned.

This past weekend Tad and Bing came to the house. I had not met either of them. How do you entertain angels? Well we decided to go for lunch, head to Cabela's, make homemade salsa, brats, chocolate chip cookies, and watch Big Red football. :)

We are blessed! I have decided that through the next couple weeks I will update the blog to inform everyone of the progress. We have many caring people who want to know and this is the easiest way I know how.

Until next time....
