Adventures of a Kidney Donor

The GREATEST News Ever!!!

Filed under: Kidney Heroes — by anne315 @ 11:38 pm

JACKIE IS GETTING A KIDNEY AT 4:30 TOMORROW (WEDNESDAY) MORNING!!!! I am SO HAPPY and excited and nervous and anxious and ecstatic and shocked and did I say HAPPY??? We didn’t expect it to be this fast. They called her this afternoon and said a cadaver kidney has become available.  WOW!! She sounded in shock but joyful on the phone.

My only regret is that I am in Pennsylvania  right now. I so wanted to be there and had been hoping our surgeries would be at different times so we could take care of each other. But I am so glad her new kidney day has arrived!!! I hope to help her and Doug and Justin when I get home on Saturday.

I am waiting anxiously by the phone…little sleep tonight and I am sure Jackie and Doug and Justin aren’t sleeping either. You plan for this day but it’s unreal when it arrives and so suddenly.

This is a picture of my beautiful friend Jacqueline Renee. I wish her lovely face was showing. From that day in junior high over thirty years ago to this wonderful day, friends forever. I love you my beloved friend and words can’t express how happy I am that you will soon be free from dialysis.


  1. Anne, this is wonderful news. Looking forward to the updates and keeping you all in my prayers.
