Smallest Siblings In the World
Bridgette and Brad Jordan
While in Chicago having our yearly MRA scans of the Brain we went to the Nike Store on Michigan Avenue. Bri picked herself up a new pair of Kicks.....this is her first pair of Jordan Shoes...even in PINK!
Brads all clear for his kidney transplant. Our donor is in the final stages of medical clearance. It is very much a journey!
Enjoy Spring Everyone!!
Success Abi and I just made 5 star taco seasoning with very little sodium content!!! With Bradley's kidney disease it is important to find easy ways to change our diets so we are going to be trying new recipes. I Just fed it to Baili, Abi, Brad and Bri and got two thumbs up....and thats a tough crowd to please!

1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin

First three ingredients for traditional seasoning packet was yellow corn flour, Salt, Maltodextran...........and last was caramel color (isn't this what was in the news that is in soda?) Just proves we don't need that premix for taste and convenience we just need to plan ahead! It took Abi and me all of 2 minutes to mix up! Dollar General has spices for 1 dollar and the rest I got Schnucks brand for 1.99 I am sure you can purchase very cheap at other stores!
Feel free to try and comment. We welcome any good low sodium healthy recipes!
Brad and possible donor both had blood done for kidney transplant! Even though they are not really brothers PRAY they are blood brothers! We wait....it will take 7 to 10 days for the results to be back.
Many of you may already know but Brad is in need of a kidney transplant. We have been going through the process over the last several months. Transplantation of any kind is a journey not a day trip. Brad was notified today that he is a candidate for a living donation. We are blessed to have a donor aka Brad's Angel already going through that process. Next week, Brad and his potential donor will give blood to determine if they are indeed a good match. God is Good All the Time! Please keep Brad in your prayers along with all those waiting on transplant. Remember that organ donation is the gift of life!
