RE: Babs "John Clark & The One Kidney Club"

Blessing Babs!

Thank you so much for welcoming me to the "club."  I may now qualify as a "newbie" to your club, but you are a member of such a greater stature.

Jhn 15:13           Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

By the grace of God and through significant guidance by the Holy Spirit, I discovered that I had a tumor in my left kidney.  Further guidance "just happened" (sure) to immediately bring to me the name of one of the top kidney surgeon's in the region (medical director of the robotic surgical division in a major hospital's cancer center, in the capital of my state - and he just happened to be a urologist).  I composed my own referral letter and faxed it to his office early Monday morning.  That afternoon I had a voicemail, and an appointment on Wednesday.  Seeing that this was not considered an emergency, all I had to do is wait for the next opening on his surgical schedule.  A little over a month later on July 13, the surgeon removed a stage III carcinoma from my body which was contained in my left kidney.  That made me free of the kidney, but also free of the cancer.  I regret that, that kidney is of no use to anyone.  My mother spent the last six months of her life, almost in torture, going through dialysis.  Donating a kidney, whether you be dead or alive, is truly an act of love.

Babs, you are love.  You are fulfilling the greatest commandment:
Jhn 15:12           This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

I will be praying for you and your beloved, especially on your anniversary of August 7.  I will then celebrate on August 8, by returning to work.

God bless you Babs.
Num 6:24           The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
Num 6:25           The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
Num 6:26           The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
