Now his sister Quinn is having a kidney transplant Tuesday, which is coincidentally her 8th birthday. She is receiving a kidney from an unrelated donor known to the family through church, Cheryl. It adds new meaning to church family, especially considering that Gage also received his kidney from a church friend.
To add to what they are dealing with, which is far more than any family should have to deal with, Gage has to deal with a lot of emotional pain that this is bringing back up from his own transplant.
So, please, during the next 2 days, take a moment and pray for this family, including Cheryl. I'm not comfortable posting pictures of other people's children without permission, so you'll have to check out their site to see for yourself, but these are 2 very, very cute kids who have been through more than any child ever should have to endure.
Until Quinn's transplant is over this blog will continue with this entry posted because what she is going through is much more important than me freaking out about the hospital. I need to try to have half the courage this little girl has; she'll be a good example to me during my own countdown. I'll post Tuesday night when I know she is all through and recovering.
