Transplant News!

Emily is listed! YEAH!! She is now on the National Kidney Transplant list as of 3:30 this afternoon. There are many things to be grateful for:
1) it is retroactive to the day she started dialysis March. 6, 2007
2) she is considered a child because the adult age is 13 and she is 12
3) that puts her higher on the list
4) she is healthy and doing well :)
I will begin the testing to donate my kidney in the next week. She is on the list as Active, meaning that if a kidney were to come available that matched before my testing is completed, she could use that one. If that makes sense? Let's just pray that whatever happens, it happens quickly. Thank you again for all of your thoughts and prayers.


Jack Sr.and Jack Jr. had birthdays on the 7th and the 11th. I am married to a 39 year old man, WOW! that's old :) Our son is ten! Jack Sr. wanted to buy Jr. a lawn mower for his birthday. As great as that sounds to Jack Sr., I put the hold on that for now. We had a few friends and family over for cake and ice cream last night. It was fun. So, grateful for both of these boys, one who sets a good example and the other who follows!

Disneyland 2008

Thanks to some sweet friends, we were given tickets for the whole family to go to Disneyland. So, yesterday we ditched school and went! We had the most amazing time! Jack Jr., Gracie and Max had never been, so for them it was the time of their lives. It was not crowded at all. We were able to ride everything and not wait longer than 20 min. on each ride...except for Nemo. They will not let me forget that I made them stand in that line :) Max was even tall enough to ride with us. Space Mountain was "SO FUN" until we started to go faster, then it became "SO SCAREY". It was really a great memory for all of us. As we were leaving the park, Jack Sr. said " Well take it in, because we will not be back for another 10 years!" HAHA I hope to not make that a tradition, but now at least we can say, Yes we have taken our kids to Disneyland.
