I am a “take me as I am” kinda lass. My husband spoils me absolutely rotten, and I love it! He is my rock. He’s the one I go to when I don’t know the way forward. He’s always there for me, no matter what I’m going through. I have the two most amazing boys, and I absolutely adore them. And they love their mom, aka moi! I’m a cat lover. I hate abuse in any form directed towards anyone/anything.
I can’t stand incompetence or intolerence.
I have a very close relationship with my sister. She is the strongest person I know. She has gone through so much heartbreak yet she still stands. She has never made anyone feel inferior or like it’s their fault for her trying times, she is always friendly and helpful. She has never shunned anyone for being in a position that she would dearly love to be in. I salute you sis!! She was my kidney donor until 6 weeks before the transplant, when the Drs pulled the plug. She might not donate her kidney to me anymore, but she is there by my side all the way. And with my husband and my Sister by my side I will walk this road until we find a solution.
I have realised that not all dreams come true, so as we move forward with our dreams in tatters, I realise that we can survive broken dreams, we just need to find our new normal. We do need dreams, but we cannot let them become our everything. I’m learning to be flexible with my dreams and being ok with that.
EDIT: Well, my amazing Sister donated her kidney to me after all! We found a Dr who was willing to do the relevant tests and found both of us to be fit for Transplant. That was on May 21st 2013, an amazing day in all our lives. My new kidney is functioning beautifully. My blood results are looking pretty normal. My amazing Sister is doing so well, she has returned to her running and her kidney function has returned to normal. I am eternally grateful for her precious gift, it was an honour and a privilege to share this experience with her, she’s my best friend and now she’s my kidney donor too. I love you madly Sis!!!
