UPDATE -

For those that didn't see it on Facebook...I called the hospital yesterday to see if the results were back yet and I am a match!!!!! I have to go in for more testing and to meet the doctors before the final approval to be able to donate. It could still be years before she needs a new kidney but I am so relieved that I can (hopefully) help! Thanks for your thoughts and prayers!



My mom has end stage kidney disease/renal failure. Right now she is seemingly healthy (kidney function at 20ish%) but has just gone through the process to get on the transplant list as it can take quite some time to find a donor.

Tomorrow I am going in for blood work to do tissue type sampling to see if I am a match to donate a kidney to my mom. We are the same blood type which is a big first step.

It takes a few weeks to get the results back and I'm really hoping I am a match. I would donate to her in a heartbeat and I'm scared that it's going to be difficult to find a living donor if I'm not a match.

I'm not nervous about any of the testing, or if I am a match, the actual donation process. I just want to know if I am a match and am really praying that I am.

I guess I just need to get some of the nervousness out of my system and am posting here. I know your thoughts won't change the outcome but they are appreciated.

Wow. I will keep you in my Ts and Ps and I really hope it works out how you want it to. That is an incredible thing to do though. Do you have any siblings in the case that you are not a match?

No, I don't have any siblings. My mom does have a brother and a sister, her brother doesn't think he's the same blood type though. I have a few cousins, one of which I know offered to get tested. My step dad is not the same blood type but my dad is. He would get tested but has his own health issues.

I'm hopefully optimistic but still nervous!

I have a friend that went through this process last year.
As nervous as he was, he was overjoyed that he could be the one to help his brother.
I will keep you and your mom in my prayers.

Thanks for the T&P's. We should know in 2-3 weeks if I am a match.
