i got the word last night. i am a perfect tissue match to donate a kidney to my mother-in-law. both of her kidneys failed over 6 years ago. she's been going to dialisis 4 x a week since. surgery won't happen for about another 3 months. now i have to ask for all of your help. my new 180 gal is up and running and doing great ( sorry no build thread yet but its comming, i ducumented the progress on a daily basis) my wife is clueless about anything with this tank. i'll be in the hospital for about 4 days and then for about a week i won't be able to do much. if anything happens during that time, she will log on to TRT and ask for help. please be patient and try to explain things as clearly and simple as posible. i think i'm more worried about my tank than i am about the surgery. thanks in advance. much peace!!!!

Frank! Perfect match indeed. What a fantastic gift.

You know how TRT is...we like to help. Be it prayers or good, friendly advice/instructions. Have her post in GRD, and help will come around. We'll all get to know her, as well :D

Thanks for putting us on alert.

Frank, that's a wonderful thing you are doing for your mother-in-law. What a gift to give!

I was quite active with our East Tennessee Kidney Foundation for several years. I have seen first hand the blessing that such a donation can produce, both to the donor and donee.

Best wishes to you both for a successful transplant.

Dick:)

That is nice!!

About your tank I suggest you show your wife what you do on the tank, have her help you do the maintenance from now until the operation and she will get a good understanding of why, what and when to do the things you do in the tank.
Having said that, of course we will help out.

Make sure she has your access to the board and is comfortable coming on here for answers to questions :)

thanks everyone, i knew i could count on all of you. i will be trying to teach her as much as possible in the next few months, but as anyone in this hobby knows, if anything catastrophic is going to happen, of course its going to happen at the worst possible time:drool: . i don't post very often cause ussualy if i run into a problem, i can find a solution by just doing a search and reading old posts, i just figure it would be a lot easier for her to just ask. thanks again, and i will introduce my wife to all of you before i go in so she can get a feel for the site and all of you. .....much peace!!!!!
