Lots To Hope For

Hayley was accepted to Mayo to test for possible kidney transplant.  She is a great candidate.  The first Mayo doctor looked at Hayley and her chart and knew immediately that she had Wegeners.  Where was he all these years???  He was so encouraging for her future.

Annalyn, Hayley's younger sister has been testing to donate her kidney.  It has been trying as she has had to leave school and come over for about 30 different tests.  She failed one test and they wanted to retest her.  Meanwhile mom started feeling like Annalyn may not be the one the Lord intended to donate.  Jace, her brother has been persistent in wanting to donate as well as many others.  It is a sweet act of charity to offer. (The doctors want someone very close to her age or younger for best results) but non-the-less Hayley prayed and was told that there was someone else.  Leslie, a cousin meanwhile had a dream and saw herself in the hospital having just donated her kidney to Hayley.  Mom called her a couple weeks ago and asked her if she was ready just in case.  She said "I have been waiting for you to call.  I know I am the one to do this.  I have just been keeping Hayley's kidney warm for her".

Today we got word that the retest Annalyn did last week was one point away from acceptance.  She got an 89 the first time and 90 the second.  She has to have a 91 to pass.  There is nothing wrong with her just that at this time she needs both her kidneys to achieve maximum function.

We are now looking for Leslie to go through the many tests.  What a sweet sacrifice.  Meanwhile Hayley is doing 3 to 4 dialysis treatments a day.  She is working and staying active.  She still hopes for a miracle of recovery but is willing to be healed through a transplant.

Thanks for the update. I have been checking this site every once in a while and I have also been following Jennie's. I will keep both girls in my prayers for now.
