Lewis Update

We have some news to share and I think it would be easy to just post it all here...

Back in September we learned that my sister's husband, Luke, was dealing with declining Kidney function and his long term prognosis would require a transplant. David immediately offered to be tested. In October we learned he was a match, but Luke’s sister was a better match so they were moving forward with her testing.

We received a call a few weeks ago that Luke’s sister had tested out and David was the next possible option. On March 8-9th David will travel to Duke University in North Carolina to complete the testing. With his health we expect him to pass all the tests and be cleared for surgery.

As of right now the surgery is scheduled for March 16th. David and I plan on traveling to North Carolina on the 14th of March. I will stay for 10 days and David will stay for approximately three weeks. I will keep everyone up to date with my facebook status’s on the day of the surgery and afterwards, so if you would like to be kept up to date, make sure you are subscribed to my updates. (I will be keeping information off my news feed until David has completed the final testing).

Please feel free to ask us questions. I will post updates on facebook and possibly update this blog

03/13/12 UPDATE: We have been cleared to leave for North Carolina tomorrow and the surgery will be on Friday. There is still a small chance David could still test out, but the doctors are confident he wont.

I will not committ to keeping anyone up to date individually on all that happens on Friday, so please keep your eyes on my blog or facebook.

I am SO greatful for my amazing friends who have stepped up to help out. Josiah will be staying with good friends of ours, and visiting another family. Please continue/begin to pray for all involved as this journey continues.
