Did you donate your kidney?

I'm thinking of donating a kidney to a family member whose kidney failure has reached a life-threatening point. I've looked at this site
, but its not super informative. I don't even know if I'm a match yet, but for whatever reasons, although I don't want to be cavalier about this decision, I just don't feel a lot of hesitation about taking this on. I'm in good health, my parents are in good health, and both my grandmothers lived to quite an old age (meaning, I think I have pretty 'good genes', for whatever that's worth). Anyway, have you or has someone close to you donated a kidney? Are there things you wish you had considered first? Resources that were particularly helpful? Anything else I should know?
