As many of you know, close personal friends of mine, David and Emily Golladay have a little girl named Laynee, and she was in desperate need of a kidney.
After an exhaustive search for a donor, none could be found, then her mother Emily, volunteered her kidney; however there were complications, and Emily had to undergo a number of processes in order for her kidney to work in Laynee’s body, needless to say, I am happy to report that Laynee underwent kidney replacement surgery yesterday (April 22, 2009), and both she and her Mom (the donor) are doing well.
According to family the doctors are amazed at how well Laynee's body is accepting the new kidney, within 2 hours after the operation Laynee's new kidney started functioning!
No matter what your day is looking like today, trust me when I say, “All is right in the world!”
Good wishes to Laynee, Emily and family.
Jason, thanks for the comment, and wishes, I can’t yell it loud enough! – with over 100,000 people on the organ transplant list in the U.S. and 1600 in Washington State, it pains me to know that 18 die every day because an organ could not be found! – This is as you said, “a great blessing” indeed!
May the Lord be with Laynee, her mother, and all their family and friends as they recover from the surgery! What a great blessing, thanks for sharing the good news.
