I gave my husband a kidney, then he dumped me...
Daily Mail UK ^ | 1-26-14 | Emily Davies

A wife who saved her dying husband’s life by giving him one of her kidneys wants it back after he walked out on her.

Andy Lamb was suffering from renal failure and was only being kept alive by dialysis sessions, until his wife Samantha persuaded him to take one of her kidneys.

Mrs Lamb, 41, lost more than 3st in weight to make sure that she would be healthy enough for the transplant operation in October 2009.

The couple were even filmed for a BBC show which documented the story of her gift of love. But they did not live happily ever after.

Just a few years after the life-saving procedure, their marriage was over when Mr Lamb walked out on his wife in August 2012.

Mrs Lamb is adamant that her husband started having an affair with her friend – a claim he categorically denies.

He moved his belongings out of their marital home one evening while she was working a night shift at Tesco.

He also took the TV and stereo before posting the keys through the letterbox without a note or letter, she claims.

KEYWORDS: transplant
Mrs Lamb says she now regrets donating the kidney to her husband and wishes she could have it back – if only to donate it to someone more deserving.

I have to wonder whether Mrs. Lamb reminded her husband daily of how much he owed her. I would have moved out too.

Didn’t this happen in the storyline of LOST, the tv series? John Locke gave a kidney to his father, then his father said he wanted nothing to do with him. Truth is stranger than fiction (or rivals it).

Well atleast it was only her kidney.

It could have been her heart.

She should at least look on the bright side: she lost three-stone in weight, a man who didn’t love her, and regained her freedom!

“Truth is stranger than fiction (or rivals it).”

A gal I worked with years ago made a good point about this. She said: of course truth is stranger than fiction, fiction has to make at least SOME sense!

That lady can’t get her kidney back at this point, she’ll have to just enjoy virtue being its own reward.

Excellent analysis. Are you a member of Optimists International, or whatever that group is called?

But, you are right, she SHOULD look at it that way.

NEVER EVER eat kidney pie in England. They are made from the bad kidneys the hospitals take out.

The same goes for “Head Cheese” “Hearts of Lettuce”.

Bon Appetit!

Hardly the same thing. It was years later. Of course nobody reads the articles and you believe the headline.
