I’ve never been a religious person…I personally don’t want to be a “Sunday Christian”. You know the type that does whatever they want all week long, having sex, drinking, smoking, whatever “sinful” things you can do and go to church on Sunday like they’re the holiest of holies. To me that’s just hypocritical. If you’re going to claim you live a Godly life, then really live it. I know that my personal lifestyle doesn’t reflect that, so I don’t pretend that it does on Sundays. Anyway, the point is I’ve been praying more these past months, maybe even year, than I have in my entire life. I’m putting my faith in a higher power and trusting the unseen.
My aunt is dying of kidney disease and a lot of us in the family were/are being tested to see if we are compatible living donors. In my immediate family, I’m the only one who got tested. Of course, all of her immediate family was including grandchildren and no luck. She is on dialysis and not doing well. She’s holding up a good front but we all know she’s hurting.
I just found out that I’m not a compatible kidney donor for my aunt. I just told my cousin and haven’t heard back yet, so we’ll see what their next step will be. It’s sad because she’s getting weaker and her donor chances are getting slimmer and slimmer. Hopefully things will work out, but only time will tell what will happen. Until then, I’m going to keep praying.
