Sad news about Grandma and happy news about Dad

My Mommy is away and I am so sad. She just wants you all to know somethings so I am letting her use my blog and waiting for her to come home.

Hi everyone and everypet, this is Anne, my Mom passed away on Monday morning. She was 92 and in poor health. I know she is in a better place and she had a very good and full life. On Sunday evening, my husband, who is on kidney dialysis got a call from the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics, where he was on a waiting list. They had not just one but 2 kidneys for him!!! We got the call at 8 p.m. and were in the car by 9. We got to Madison at 4 a.m.(we live in Michigan). The transplant took place at 7:30 a.m. and both kidneys are functioning very well. The doctors are amazed at how well he is doing. I am writing this on Thursday and he might be going home(to Michigan) Saturday or Sunday. I think that is incredible. It is so amazing how life works. The morning my Mom passed away, his new life began. Sashy is home with my daughter and doing fine. I miss them both something awful. We will be home soon. I just wanted to share the happy news.

God bless you all
Anne and Sasha

I'm finally back to Blogville. I didn't realize you had posted here about the transplant.

I'm hoping that my prayers and the prayers of others have eased your grief for your mother. I know she is in a better place and waiting for you to someday join her.

I don't know if I told you... Our children's pastor's father had also been waiting for 3 years and received a new kidney the same week! I am so happy for him and for your husband. God is good!

Hi Anne,

Sorry about your sad news and happy about the good news that the transplant went so well.

Sorry about my lack of visits.
Spike's, our dog, illness, quick death nov/dec and being so ill jan/feb to march meant no visits.

Since then I have been spending more time sitting in my wheelchair I have also not been visiting.

I just passed by to say hello.
I hope you are doing well.
