Donors Save Lives

I've been keeping most of the personal stuff off this blog and turning it more into a cooking/recipe share site.

However, I needed to share the good news that my dad successfully received a kidney transplant on Thursday 2/25/10!

So far, everything is looking great and discharge is planned for today.  It's been a long and emotional weekend, but a happy one.

Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers as well as the family of the donor.

If you are not already, you can sign up with the State of Illinois as a registered organ donor through Donate Life Illinois.  In addition, please make sure to let your intentions known to your friends and family.

That's great to hear Amy!

I wanted to also give you a heads up on a campaign that we're involved in preparing for National Donate Life Month called Mascots On A Mission (

Check it out, DLI's own mascot, Morgan D' Organ is involved.

Thanks again for supporting the issue and here's wishing a speedy recovery for your Dad!

Sorry for such a late comment, but I'm happy to hear this good news!

We need to get together SOON.
