Urgent Prayer Request

I am asking for prayers for my sister-in-law, Kristin. On Tuesday, December 12 she collapsed because her kidney failed (she only has one). She was flown to the Mayo Clinic and is intensive care. She has had three transplants. She is not doing well and time is very much of the essence. She has no definite matches for a kidney and the only possible ones are from her mother and her sister. However, the doctors will not be certain for another two weeks. Time is very short.

Furthermore, Kristin needs a perfect match this time, something that her mother and sister are likely not. The doctor informed her today that she has to find as close to a perfect match as possible because she will not be able to be operated on anymore. If her kidney fails again, the doctors can't do anything and she will likely die.

I am asking desperately for prayers. She is married to my twin brother, Drew. Furthermore, my brother cannot be up there with her due to unforseen circumstances. He is frantic and she is not doing well.

Also, if any of you are interested in possibly donating (for which we would be eternally grateful), you can shoot me an e-mail at prayforkristin@hotmail.com. I will get back to you as soon as possible. Also, shoot me an e-mail if you want updates. Please pass the word on to anyone willing to pray. Thank you all and God bless.

My goodness gracious - well over a month since your last post, dear sister. One would wonder...

Well, at least I have been keeping up with some posts over the past few weeks. Not a lot, but enough that I can brag about it when comparing my blog to yours. :-)

Now that Kristin's condition has stabilized somewhat, I think that the most important thing to pray for is the intention of Drew and Kristin as a family. They need many prayers since Drew is forced to continue working in Georgia while Kristin is still at the Mayo Clinic. Holy Family, intercede for this new family!
