SAWYER, Mich.--- We have a happy follow up to a special story we told you about last week.

One week ago, we introduced you to Cynthia Zubik and her husband of 43-years, David.

Cynthia has been on dialysis for more than a year desperately waiting for a kidney transplant.

Well it turns out, David was a perfect match.

Today, he donated his kidney to save Cynthia’s life.

Before surgery, the couple kissed, said "I love you," and fist pumped.

They both came out of surgery just fine.

They'll be in the ICU overnight for observation, and then their two children will nurse them both back to health.
