In brief: Absolutely

Donating is a remarkable gift to end stage renal disease patients.
The procedure is a surgery that will last a few hours where your health kidney is transplanted to another patient. You will likely spend another day or two in the hospital if there are no complications. You will also be out of work for another week or two afterwards. So you definitely qualify for fmla.
