I said this to you privately GB, but I will also say it here. You are an amazing generous man and I am honoured to know you.

Thanks Alix. I just want to make sure that he is around as long as he possibly can be. I want my kids to know him and I want him to be able to enjoy them.

Don't thank me Gb. If anything we should all be thanking you for being the person that you are.

I have to agree with your FIL on the transplant issue. If I were in the same situation with the family history I would not take a kidney that could be a match for my child or grandchild. To me it would be like choosing to save myself from a sinking ship and leaving my child and grandchild behind. Parents almost always put the well being of their children first. Just try to understand where he is coming from regarding the transplant.

I have seen the meaning of life, but I don't recall that skit. I don't actually remember much from that movie. Now the holy grail on the other hand, that I can recite word for word

Thanks for the kind words BT. I am not considering anything that anyone else here would not consider if they were in the same situation I am in.

Lizannd you are absolutely right and I do see your point (and his). In the end, the decision will be up to him. I will not be able to force him to take my kidney (if I decide that is what I want to do and the Dr's OK me). He will have the final say. I will certainly respect his decision if he denies me for that reason.
