Can’t sleep 👀.. Posting this photo to end March, a Kidney Awareness Month, as a reminder to NEVER give up. Never give up faith, hope, and strength to fight obstacles that gets thrown at us. We tend to take the little things in life for granted. But as a family, we can fight and pray until it all unfolds the way it’s suppose to be.
6 years ago my husband was diagnosed with double kidney failure. He’s been on dialysis for 3 years. We were told life expectancy on dialysis is about 5-10 years. And to top it off his blood type is so rare that only 3% population in the states share the same kind. 💔
I’m the universal blood type. But unfortunately after running extensive testing I am not a good candidate to donate. 😞 They detected that I’ll need both kidneys to survive in future. (it’s awesome they could see that)
Totally heart broken when we found that out after thinking this was the moment. I’ve learned getting angry at the world only attracts more negativity. I’ve come to peace that I must leave it up to the higher powers to allow everything to fall into place. Not only do I want to spread awareness, I want to remind you to be kind to everyone you meet. You just never know what they’re going through. #kidneyforjohn#kidneyawareness#kidneydonorneeded
My wonderful husband turns a year older. We will always be thankful for the times we have with this special human. Kidney failure and undergoing dialysis can really take a toll on ones body and mental state. We continue to stay positive in hopes to find him a kidney one day. B- blood type is truly hard to find and we’ve accepted that. Being patient and thankful every day to keep our day going. 🙏🏽❤️ #kidneyForJohn
