Woman donated kidney to husband of 30 years

An Indianapolis man has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season thanks to a gift from his wife.

Lori Krabbe is donating a kidney to her husband of 30 years.

After a year of her husband Ken's health declining, his only change to survive was with either dialysis or a kidney transplant.

Luckily for Ken, his wife Lori was a perfect match, and she worked for the greater part of the year to lose sixty pounds so she could be healthy enough for surgery.

“It's been a tough journey for my wife the donor. She had to get down to a certain weight and so forth. It took several months, and they put her through a lot to do this. So it's special,” says Ken.

Doctors say the couple will be feeling great by Christmas, and that Lori's priceless gift to her husband is a miracle.
