Ok, you got me again....not really today, but yesterday...7 years ago yesterday, I donated a kidney to my brother. We're both just peachy and today I got some beautiful flowers from my brother and his wife to commemorate. Why no picture you ask? Dead battery in the camera and just haven't had a chance to stop for a new one. Can you believe it?!?
Once again...I must climg on my soap box...if you haven't registered online to be an organ donor please do so today. Do not sign your license do not tell your family...those things do not matter according to Illinois Law...you MUST register on line. Actually you can sign your license, but unless you're registered online, your family can still over ride your decision. Please make the decision while you're healthy and your family isn't under the stress of losing a loved one. REGISTER TODAY!! And, if you feel so moved, register to become a live donor...it was a piece of cake surgery and we can all live just fine with one kidney. Thousands of people each year die waiting for organs. Please don't take your organs to Heaven, Heaven knows we need them on Earth!
