Well, I went and had my blood tests done today. I won't find out for a couple of days if we passed or not. I did have an interesting day. A photographer from The Times went with me to have the bloodwork done. The ladies at the lab and I got to have our pictures taken.
I also went back to The Times photo studio and had a video made to go on their website. Some time this week, they will be doing a story for the paper. I'm just trying to get the word out about kidney donation. A lot of people don't realize that it's even a possibility to donate to a stranger.
There are probably a lot of people that would never think about it, but there are many that would. To me, it's worth the embarrassment of media attention to get even one person to donate.
For now, I just wait again. I'll let everyone know as soon as I hear if the surgery is a go. I hope this is the last time I have to wait. It's hard.
