Bilby, The thought of my son going through surgery is off putting to say the least. We have been to hospital so much, with him through his motocross racing career, his oldest sister in her sports and now with Jim. I know he is not a child anymore but... I know - there is no guarentee that he will get that far. Okay, I'm done. Anyways it's his birthday, he can do as he wants to!! Oh, my baby is 21!!! How did he get so old, I'm not!?!?!?!? Dawn

Bilby is right, Dawn. Let anyone and everyone get tested so that you and hubby and the docs know what your options are when and if the time comes. It will just make things much simpler and decisions easier. And wow, you must be so proud of your son! (Along with wanting to bop him for even thinking about it!)

Fisher's Mom, You are right, I am proud of him. I want to bop him sometimes but I am proud more often then not. Just let my SILs know about Jim, 3 of them are willing to be tested for donor potential. The other is not sure what she feels, and I don't blame her. Jim is the baby of the family and the only boy. I told her sisters to leave her alone and let her think about it, check things out for herself and if she needs to talk to Jim she will do it without pressure. You would have thought I had 2 heads!! Yes, she is the youngest girl and only 3 years older then Jim. They(the 3) bully her alot as it is, so I end up standing up for her.

You know, I would never wish this on anyone and I can just imagine how stressful this is for ya'll. But to find out so many people are willing to get tested must be an awesome feeling. Jim is surely a wonderful man. All these people willing to give him an organ!!! It makes me tear up just reading about it.

Okay, now I'm going to go buy stock in tissue. I've used enough these last few days to build a mansion for several companies!! Yes, I agree. Jim is definately a wonderful man and truly blessed with family and friends. As I am with my family and friends here at DC. Thank you all. :) Dawn

Just to update: Have an app't Friday with dialysis counselor. Have lots of questions for her!! Now have a new friend - SIL's hubby has a friend that is a Harvard professor of Medicine, a researcher and now is interested in Jim's health problem. Has requested lab results and tests copies be sent to him also. He feels Jim's Drs. at Strong are tops, what a relief to hear!!! Dawn :)

Dawn,
Know that Jim has angels watching over him. It's manifested through all these wonderful people that surround him -- family, friends, doctors, etc. All of my prayers are with him so he can stay strong and accepts what comes. There is no pain that Heaven cannot heal.
