Not flowers and hearts, but a kidney: A Minnesota man will get a Valentine's Day gift of a lifetime.
Ron Spanier and fiance Amy Anderson are preparing for the kidney donation Tuesday at the University of Minnesota Medical Center-Fairview.
Spanier's been on dialysis since last summer after a disease caused cysts in his kidneys. The two have a 3-month-old son. Spanier jokes that since Anderson gave him his first-born and a kidney, he figured he'd marry her.
Anderson tells the St. Cloud Times she understands the stress of medical problems. Her first husband died of a stroke. Anderson has two children from that marriage, a 10-year-old daughter and an
8-year-old son. Spanier and Anderson will plan their wedding after
they heal from the surgery.
