A few months back I posted here asking you all to "like" the FB page "Help Paul find an Organ Donar"

I hope some of you do, because I now a lot of you DID in fact like the page...

Anyway... I wanted to updat you ladies.

I am so happy and greatful and relieved to say that he DID in fact find a live donor match!!!

The past few months have been so touch and go for him. He got an ecoli infection in his leg...it was sooo bad..

His transplant surgury is scheduled for Feb. 8!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CARING BRIDGE (if you want updates, to sign the guestbook/say something kind etc)

He is not out of the woods yet, there is still the surgury, and recovery etc. So If you ladies could keep him in your thoughts!

Thank you all so much!!

Oh, the donor, Kathy, is actually someone my SIL went to college with...she saw the fb and got tested! AMAZING!!!!!!

    He has had a rough few months with several hospitalizations. It was critical that he found a liver NOW..I am very thankful that he did! My whole family is very happy about it. The outpour of people wanting to be tested to see if they were a suitable match after the FB page was made was a little overwhelming. LUCKILY it did not take too many people being tested. For just the diagnostic to see if you are a match is soooo expensive! It is absolutely crazy. Thank you for following Paul. It made him very hopeful to see so many people "like" the page..to know that people cared.
