Donate!: Not one single day! it is very safe and experience in people who are born with one kidney, soldiers who lost a kidney from gunshot wounds in wwi and wwii and experience with donors since the 1960's show the life expectancy is unequivocally normal. But what does change is a big change in your ethical and moral standing. You have given the "gift of life".

Pray: Septic shock leading to kidney failure is one of the most devastating medical conditions, and all such patients should be in an intensive care unit. The patient needs to be under the care of a medical team consisting of an intensivist, pulmonary, infectious disease and nephrology doctors. The mortality from this condition is over 80-90% and almost always some form of dialysis is required.
