What we've all been waiting for....

Jill the transplant coordinator called today with my antibody percentage...finally.
It's 47% which basically means that 47% percent of the population would have antibodies against mine. Meaning they wouldn't be a match. So there ya have it, not good but could be worse.

Hi, You don't know me, but I live in Holland too! I saw a flyer downtown and tried really hard to remember your blog name:) I can't believe I remembered!
Anyways, I am truly touched by your story in more ways than one. I too have lost a baby at 23 weeks and it is not an easy path to go down! It will be her 5 year birthday/anniversary next week. I can't believe how the time passed so quickly. It seems like just yesterday I was holding her and then it also seems like a lifetime ago! If you ever want to chat I would definitely be up for that I'm a good listener:) and I know what you are going through!
I will keep you in my prayers and thoughts!

Katie-
Just think of this - God knows exactly who it is that will be your kidney match. He knows every last detail about everything. He knows what that person is doing right now and He is preparing them for this special time in their life, just as He is preparing you and Robb. I'm praying that we can take all these thoughts and details and put them in Jesus' hands and feel the wonderful peace that passes all understanding. God's peace comes from knowing that He's in control. Let's remind each other of that often.

Katie,
Just think, you have a 50% chance of finding the right person soon! The glass is half full! It's like the meteorologists, when they give us a 50% chance of rain, and we can look at it as, "it will probably been nice weather today". God knows the perfect timing for your transplant and has it all planned out. He is the only one who knows when, where and who it is. We have to depend on Him, and look to the Rock of all Ages. Take care hun, you're strong and have a deep faith. Even on low days, you know the truth deep down. Doctors are only humans, and they can be wrong about your ability to have children also. God will work everything out in His way. He works in mysterious ways!
Prayers and blessings to both of you.
