Five on Friday ~ 10/09/15





Today for my Five on Friday ~ 10/09/15, I am going to talk about five things I am thankful for to celebrate Thanksgiving.

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving this weekend!



  1. I am thankful for my husband. He has been a soldier by my side while I was fighting kidney failure. He is an amazing father to both our children. Even though he is gone through the week because he is a trucker, he always is a phone call away if any of us need him. He has even parented through the phone for the kids or lend a ear for them. We celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary on the 4th of October.IMG_1467
  2. I am thankful for my children. They make me laugh, drive me a bit crazy and cheer me up. They are amazing children who always try to be good kids. I can’t wait to see what kind of adults they will be but also hope they don’t grow up too fast!wedding backdrops photo booth uk
  3. I am thankful for my transplant donor. I don’t know my donor but he is my biggest hero. I think of him daily and think of his family who lost this young man. I can’t say enough about how important this stranger is to me. I will never meet him but I will always carry him in a special place of my heart.  (Today is my 2 month post transplant anniversary! I have had no rejection so far and the kidney is working great! Hope this keeps up!!)
  4. I am thankful for my family and friends who have been by my side. Those that visited me in the hospital while I had my kidney transplant and those that cheered me on through the internet. I had people that I met online show me such compassion that I hope to be able to show them some day. My sister was really amazing. The night I had a transplant, she stayed by my side with my husband waiting for me to come out even though she had a birthday party for my niece the next day. I can never thank her enough.
  5. And as always a Canadian funny. I am thankful to be Canadian and live in this amazing country!

    Kidney transplants are pretty amazing surgeries these days. My nephew had to have one when he was three after being born without. He's turning 19 next month and he's in his second year of post secondary studies. Same kidney - all signs are still great. If you are going to have a transplant, this seems like one of the best ones to have. Best of luck to you!

      That's great about your nephew! I hope he has many many more years with that kidney. It is so amazing what they can do for a kidney transplant. So far everything is going so well. I am very lucky! Thanks for the well wishes!
