My Girl

This is my girl. My Sara. My heart. My soul. My life. My reason to live. My dreams. My baby girl. I know I posted this picture right after she graduated from college, but I wanted to look at it again because this just says it all about her. She's fun-loving, hilarious, incredibly smart,loyal, passionate, honest, and has a heart the size of Sri Lanka. (take my word for it, it's big)

This angel girl of mine has a friend close to her age who is in kidney failure. She's married with a small child and as if the kidney crap wasn't enough, she has diabetes too. She is on the kidney transplant list and Sara filled out all the paperwork to see if she could be a living donor.

She matched.

She went through a battery of tests and one of the tests came up in the high range. They decided to repeat the test and as of last week she was rejected as a donor because there is a chance there is something wrong with her kidneys. She was devastated that she couldn't help her friend. That's my daughter.

She had a kidney ultrasound on Saturday and I'm hoping we get the results tomorrow so we'll know what to do next. Please keep this precious, warm spot in my heart in your thoughts.

Maybe this was supposed to happen. Perhaps by wanting to help her friend, she was given the chance to catch something in herself early.

Either way, she obviously has a heart of gold.
