I am very thankful that my sister, Lynda, has an improving thyroid levels based on the recent findings from her donor's tests. She still has to consult a specialist to make sure it is controlled. She used to have a very high thyroid hormone level and it made her feel very tired and she even had hair loss because of it. :( I know how awful it is to lose hairs. I had terrible hair loss last year and it was really scary.
Last week, just a couple of hours after I wrote the post about her testings and my kidneys, she texted me that the transplant coordinator called her up and told her the surgeon said her left kidney is good for donation. At that time, I was struggling whether it was okay to feel happy about it. I felt that I will be very self-centered if I will be elated, because it's about me. She will undergo pain because of me. Ugh, that is so hard to accept. But you know how a true friend and sister she is to me? This was her reply:
She actually jumped up and down rejoicing for me! She really is beyond me! I am very much humbled by her love. Thanking God seems to be not enough for Lynda! I am acknowledging that God is the ultimate source of blessings and grace, and He is directing Lynda to do this out of love. Oh, I can go on and on about how I can't get over with all these blessings...Anyway...
I am also thankful for the recent blessing that God gave me. Yep, there's more! A new part time job in the town's library. Do you remember how I prayed for it? I couldn't think of the better timing. I was just thinking of where to get extra money for medical bills. Please don't think that I am complaining because I am not. I am grateful for dialysis, for blood tests, and for medicines. Still, I have a need to be able to pay for those. The co-pay for one of my medicines, the phosphate binder, Renagel, costs about $450. It's not cheap, sadly.
God gave me a job which fits to my schedule! How cool was that? I still have a lot to learn though. I am so thankful for my very kind and helpful boss and co-workers, and all the nice (and forgiving) patrons:-). What I like about my job, aside from my nice co-workers and meeting a lot of people in town, is that I can bring my son after school, where he can work on his homework, read, and use the computer while waiting for his dad to get him.
I thank God for all His blessings!
