Donating Kidney to My Daughter

Yes guys you read right. This is the reason I have been out of the loop for so long. I have been getting everything ready for me to give my daughter a kidney. The transplant will most likely be towards the end of the year.

i have been trying to get the Army to give me permission to do it. Keep your fingers crossed.

I will keep you guys posted.

*EDIT* The Army gave me the go ahead to do it. We're looking at Oct. 13 for the transplant!!!!

Wishing you guys a speedy recovery Adrian. Kind of sad that none of your family members stepped up and offered due to your job, but I'm still very glad you're a perfect match and can help her overcome this illness. Let me know if you need anything.

Thanks Tom. We never really asked our family members I just decided that she should get one from her daddy and no one else. The wife isnt a match but I am so I figured I would go through with it.

Yeah the Army allows it. In fact the Army has it's own Organ Transplant Program but I will be going through the civilian side. Its just the hassle of getting permission that's the problem.

Thanks everybody...

Quick update: I am all set and my health is in top notch condition to donate. The next hurdle is to get permission from the Army. Should be no problem there are no health issues.
