October 28, 2009 was a "red-letter" and life-transforming day for me...in so many ways.
Wednesday, October 28, 2009, at the University of Alabama-Birmingham Hospital, GOD allowed me to give my left kidney to a very precious friend who desperately needed a transplant. This was something that God put on my heart (in answer to prayer) almost one year ago...actually exactly ONE YEAR ago in April.
I'm still stunned, awed, and humbled that GOD would trust me with such an assignment.
This Sunday, March 28, 2010--will be five months anniversary of this event exactly. I feel great...have had NO complications, and am rejoicing in the "land of the living."
And I am a strong advocate for living organ donations...for obvious reasons.
