A little over 11 years ago, I took an antibiotic for an infection and I had an allergic reaction a couple of weeks after taking it. I was in acute liver failure and was admitted to the hospital. After several tests,
I was told that I would probably be in need of a liver transplant.
Our family knew that many people were praying for us and that the Lord was going to take care of me, but I continued to get worse and eventually went into a coma. One evening the doctors told my husband I was not going to live through the night.
God provided my new liver that night. Someone I didn’t know saved my life because they had made the decision to be an organ donor.
Since my transplant, I have lived a healthy and normal life. I’ve been able to see all of our children grow and graduate from high school. Recently, my son married his sweetheart, and I have held my first grandchild.
I encourage everyone to prayerfully consider being an organ donor and help save a life.
