KIDNEY STORIES: IN SEARCH OF A KIDNEY FOR GIGI

 

 
A page created in name of my beautiful wife to see if Facebook can bring us a miracle in the form of a kidney…. 
Description
Greeting FB family. This here is a page to not only to try & find my wife a hero willing to donate a kidney, but also to bring awareness of Kidney disease.
Any questions please don’t hesitate to ask, here are some words written by her~
Ok, … So now that I have opened up and asked for help I want to put some key information out there. I have been receiving so many responses and I couldn’t be more grateful! Thank you!
I need a Kidney Transplant. My blood type is O Positive (O+) The first step is to find someone with the same blood type. Once we determine that, the donor will have to call my Transplant Coordinator at NYU Hospital. After that my involvement is limited. One thing the Transplant committee wants to make sure is that the donor is doing this because they want too and are not being pressured by the recipient (me). They will test your physical health and your mental health.
For those that don’t know much…. I have been on dialysis for almost 2 years. I only have one Kidney. When I was born my kidneys did not work. They removed my left kidney and “fixed” my right one. I slowly started to get worst in my adulthood. I was told so many scary things from Doctors. The scariest was when I was told I could not have children. But boy did I prove them wrong… Once I became pregnant they tried to scare me and say I would not go past 7 months… Happy to report I completed 36 weeks pregnant and not only did I make it to the end, I had a wonderful pregnancy. After Mia was born, my kidney did not make it so I started Dialysis a year later… Don’t misunderstand me… I would do it all over again for my beautiful Mia! She is healthy, smart, beautiful, and has such an amazing spirit. To know Mia is to love her. With that said… I must fight for her and for my incredible husband who never missed my appointments when I was pregnant and has been holding my hands since.
Thank you for reading this and for all the support. May God bless us all. Gigi
