Canadian Guardian Angel...

I have one. I really do. I don't even know her her by any other name but yrhelper.

Yrhelper is holding a tweetparty for me. It was kicked off today, my 38th birthday! She is holding a contest with prizes to be won. You must go to her blog . All her proceeds that she earns through Sept. 4, 2009 through her online shops will go to my NTAF account">NTAF account. (National Transplant Assistance Fund) She is also raising awareness for a possible living kidney donor for me.

She had seen a request made by my Mother-n-law Kathleen on her active rain blog ">active rain blog . From what I understand is that she has a sister that has an autoimmune disease that was attacking her vital organs, but were able to stop it in time with medicine. Unfortunately, that is not my case and part of the reason why I blog about my disease. If I can help just one person to not get to the point that I am is soooooo worth doing this blog!!

Yrhelper is on follow her! Her blog is Rewards4Canada ">Rewards4Canada . She has great coupons and money saving ideas too.

I am asking you to reblog her post. Follow her on twitter and return her tweets for all to see. I can't believe my guardian angel is doing this. Again, I don't even know her name.

Amazing, huh?

I really don't know what else to say...I am speechless. (and for those who know me, that is hard to believe).

One thing I can say is....

THANK YOU Yrhelper!!

I also want to thank anyone who has helped me. I really appreciate it.

Not this one....

Well, I received a phone call from Jenny and Jordan this morning. It seems he will not be able to give me a kidney. He really only has one kidney working.

John and I are so thankful that Jordan and his family tried to help us out. It just was not meant to be. God has another plan for me.

Please pray that Jordan's one kidney continues to do the job of two for him. Many people live just fine like that without any problems. I am sure with a heart like his...he will be one of them.

Jordan is still my hero....

Kidney Transplant Anyone?

As many of you know I have been on the kidney transplant list since December. I have known I would need a transplant for about a year. The lack of posting is because I have been busy on my other blog Sjogrens and Me updating a lot of activity on that aspect of my life. I normally keep my blogs separate because even though both are what defines me...I personally have to keep them apart.

I am happy to say that I have a match and he is currently being tested as my living donor. His name is Jordan and he is a good friend's husband . He is my hero regardless how this turns out. His whole family is.

I will keep you posted.

Preschool Musical

Nolan had the giggles the first few seconds. He said he was laughing at a man that was laughing at him! He loves the "big stage" to perform. Thanks to all the teachers that helped especially Ms. Nekia.

My Rock Stars!

Nolan had a role in "Preschool Musical". He was a rock star. LOL His little brother Braydon wanted to support his he went as a rock star too.

We have an awesome video of Nolan performing....I just have to figure out how to get it transferred to here.

Another Trip Down Memory Lane...

These were taken just shy of 3 years ago. The boys have changed, yet still look the same compared to the last post. What do you think?

I guess Braydon has done a bit of the change....

Braydon's 3rd Birthday

Braydon had his third birthday and had a blast! His good friends Jamari, Suzi, and Belle came over to enjoy the celebration with him. This is his best friend Belle. He doesn't do anything without her and they are always holding hands. His face lights up when he talks about her. (I know he is only 3, but it is just so cute how they are so caring to one another). Enjoy the slideshow!

Homemade catapillar invitations

So, Braydon is turning three and I decided to make his invitations. It was very simple and I really just threw them together. You can make them more "perfect" if you'd like, but I like the raw edge of it.

I bought some colorful cardstock, wiggle eyes, and colorful brads. I cut 4 circles and a catapillar head with antenna. Next, I glued the wiggle eyes and punched a hole for the brads to go through. It folds up pretty nicely.

I wrote on the body of the catapillar:
Oh my goodness...How can it be? Our little Braydon is turning "three"!

I think they turned out pretty good and they cost about the same or less as picking up a package of ready made.
