Friends in Need of Prayer!

Yesterday, a dear friend of mine did the most amazing thing. She donated her kidney to her husband. He had been living with kidney disease for much of his adult life. Kellie is a co-worker and a friend who has been there for me in joy when Graeme came home and when life became difficult as Wes moved out. I love her. I just saw the following on her blog posted by her mother Tish:


"Kellie has requested that I update the blog on her behalf and ask for your continued prayer. Initially, the outcome of the surgery seemed successful. Although Kellie and Mark were in a great deal of pain following the surgery, Mark's body was producing urine through Kellie's kidney, his hypertension was decreased without medicine, and he reported feeling much better. He even walked down to Kellie's room for a snuggle this morning. However, during a routine scan of the donated kidney function, results indicated an abnormality with blood flow in the new kidney. Thus he had to go back into surgery to allow the surgeons to view the transplanted kidney to determine the status of the kidney. The kidney appears healthy, but there continues to be concern with blood flow. He is presently in the recovery room. We are asking now more than ever for your prayer as we are fearful his body will reject Kellie's kidney."

Kellie and Mark are the parents of this sweet boy, Mark Thomas and they are requesting prayers. I knew so many of you would understand. Thank you!

Praying for Mark and Kellie, specifically that the donated kidney would function properly with good blood flow, and that Mark's body would not reject it. Praying for total healing for Mark and for Kellie, and also that the Lord would watch over and comfort little Mark Thomas as his parents are away from him. He is Able!

Thank you for sharing, Margaret.

Blessings ~
