I, too, haven't been keeping up with things here lately. Dawn, I will surely pray for your husband and daughter as well as you, as all the surgery and recovery take place. I wouldn't worry about those asking questions - just tell the you don't know and will tell them (what you want them to know) when you know.

Dawn sweetie, answer what you want to if pressed just tell them you want peace and quiet to pray that everything goes well..That is more important than 20 questions, if they persist get a nurse on the qt and have her ask some of them to leave please...you need to just have who you want there and do not be afraid to throw a fit if need be..Sometimes that is all some of them understand aquiet tap on the arm and a please not now is all they get after that it's heave ho..Good luck and I'll be praying as usual
Let us know how they are

Thank you all for the prayers and grace you have shown. I don't know how I would have gotten through the past year without my DC family!! I love each and every one of you. I will keep you posted on their conditions. Dawn

Oh my gosh, Dawn, I just saw this!!!!! First of all - WooHoo!!!!!! I'm so glad the day is finally here. Give your daughter a big hug for me - she's an inspiration to us all. I'll spend all day Tuesday sending positive healing vibes to Jim and your daughter. And lots of love to you since you'll be running ragged trying to take care of both of them. Let us know as soon as you can how things are going. As far as the rest of the family, try not to let them wear you down (even though they don't mean to.) Maybe you could take an MP3 player, turn it up real loud, and then smile at them like you're actually listening.

Dawn, I'm so glad the date for the surgery is set. I pray that the weather is good, and that everything goes perfectly with the surgery and recovery.

Hello Everyone!! Just to let you know, the surgery was a success! Tara came through with flying colors, she is of course in some pain but all in all doing especially well. The doctors said her kidney was the “best” they had ever seen!! Once it was placed into Jim, it took over immediately. Praise God! Both Tara and Jim have wonderful color and body function. Thank you for all your prayers and good wishes, they certainly worked. Hurray!! Now I need to sleep a little bit so I can see both Tara and Jim later today.

Sleep and rest easy Dawn, I'm so happy for you. See all those worries are gone now and your DH and DD are just fine..Think how wonderful your DD feels giving a lease on life to her dad..How lucky they both are and you too..I admire families like yours who dig in and do anything in the world for each other..Big warm hugs to all of you
