Last December, I wrote a blog “All I want for Christmas is…a kidney” about Bernie, my daughter-in-law, and her need for a kidney transplant. Last Friday, she received one!
Bernie is doing well and should be home sometime this week. It will be a new life for her and my son Steve without the hours of dialysis, strict dietary restrictions and other limitations. Their faith, hope, patience and acceptance of their situation have been truly inspiring!
Unfortunately, Bernie’s wonderful father Gene Buerke did not live to see this day. He died from a massive stroke 2 weeks ago but we are sure he is celebrating in heaven. Please pray for the repose of his soul as well as Bernie’s speedy recovery.
Thank you all for your prayers and support!
