Everything Happens For A Reason

​Well, I received “THE” call for my transplants last week. Everything was a match which means that, my blood type matches the donor and my antibodies didn’t reject the donors. This is a great time for me to reflect on how thankful I am to everyone for their donations, caring words and support. It was because of you that I was able to stay strong and we all know how many times I was tired and just wanted to throw that towel in!


Unfortunately, I had health problems that didn’t permit me to receive the transplants but I’m not off the list and it was less than a year since I’ve been active on the transplant list so this next call could be “the” one that I’m awaiting. Everything happens for a reason right? I was told that the issues that I’m currently dealing with could have turned drastically worse so I’m taking this false alarm as a sign of fate. It just wasn’t meant to be this time around. We’re definitely prepared for the real thing now. Not that this wasn’t real because the three people who had no sleep for 2 days definitely know that this ⬇ was absolutely real!


This is a perfect time for me to mention how grateful I am for organ donors and organ donation. If it wasn’t for someone signing their donor card I may never have had the opportunity to receive these transplants! I urge those of you that are capable of donating; SIGN THAT CARD because YOU could help save someones life that will be forever thankful for your choice. Like me 🙂


This has been a wild ride that we definitely were not expecting but everything that needs treatment is being treated so that I WILL be prepared for my next trip to Montreal which will hopefully be soon again. I thank you all for staying positive for me and with me. This will happen in short time but when everything is right.

  1. My sister in law passed away on Saturday she was a doner so happy that she was you ate in my prayers

    • We are so sorry to hear of your families loss Kelly. It’s great that you guys can honor her memory by helping someone else to live a healthy life with the donation. It’s stories like yours that help encourage others to donate as well & I personally want to say thank you for that encouragement.

  2. What a journey you’ve been through and are still on. Sending all good thoughts your way.

  3. I am so appreciative of those that sign their donor card. In doing so, they can live on in others and give a new life to people like you.

    Thank you so much for sharing your journey with us and I look forward to hearing about “THE” phone call. May it come exactly when it is supposed to (or a little early, smile).

    Besos Sarah

    • Thanks Sarah 🙂 I think it’s an important story to be sharing and hopefully bringing some peace to those awaiting transplants as well. I’m glad that you’ve been following along and are always there for encouragement. Much love always ~J~

  4. Life sure does have a funny way of preparing us for things. My daughter shares a similar story about her transplant, she got the call less than 48 hours later and so far has a good kidney one year in. She did have a failed transplant back in 09 it sure is a real eye opener. We are always very thankful for the donors of course. It is the most selfless act you can do at the worst possible time. Like I would tell my daughter over and over, if you got the call you are already at the top of the list, when it is meant to be it will happen and hey practice makes perfect 🙂 Best of luck to you. I will follow your journey’s.
