UPDATE on fellow MWer Mickeyat: her kidney transplant surgery went well. She was up walking for the first time this morning. It was very painful, very expected. Her labs are looking good. she is doing well. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
Great news! I have been thinking of her since she posted. we went through the ordeal of waiting on a transplant list for a liver for my mom two years ago so I can imagine the waiting was horrible. The worst is past now it is time for her to heal. And MWers please please register yourselves to be a donor. You can register with the DMV. It can change a life for someone forever! I pray for quick healing for her and for the family of the donor.✨🙏 - DSNYCheeks3

I agree. The greatest thing you can give someone is life - dimplesdanie 607.5 #179 11:17AM
I agree, we might still have Lacey around if we had more organ donors - Dave 8639.2 #2 1:17PM
I'm an organ donor and I ride a motorcycle, so someday I'll be saving a few lives and I'm ok with that - Philliprocks 276.4 #762 2:15PM
And all you have do is have it put on your drivers license here in California and you can help someone. Make sure you tell your family what you want too, that way they can share your love with whoever needs it!! My older cousin just passed and I donated his eyes to help someone, it was so nice to know he helped someone even though he was really sick otherwise!!:) - secretagentangel 669.5 #154 7:01PM
I would love to be able to be a donor..unfortunately I'm not allowed to donate blood or organs (due to for lack of a better word weird blood) but am so grateful to those who can and do - cdeley 392.8 #341 2:16PM
