    If you ever wanted a prime example of a husband's unfailing devotion to his wife, this is it. Tracy Spraggins was losing a lifelong battle with lupus, and needed a kidney transplant to turn things around. Her husband immediately got tested to see if he could give her one of his, and was thrilled to find out he was indeed a match. However, the doctors told him he couldn't be her donor in his condition.
    Tracy had been diagnosed with lupus when she was just 6 years old. In 2013, her health had begun to deteriorate to the point where she needed to be placed on a kidney transplant list. This was a difficult blow for her since her sister had died a few months before due to complications during a kidney transplant. There also was no guarantee she'd live long enough to get a new kidney, because the list had a seven-year wait. That's when her husband stepped up.
    However, P.J. Spraggins weighed 265 pounds when he was tested to be a transplant match for his wife, which made him an unfit candidate to donate a kidney. The doctors told him he should lose at least 30 pounds before they would consider going forward with the transplant.
    In December 2014, after having lost a whopping 70 pounds, he went to Nashville's Vanderbilt Hospital to get retested. Lo and behold, the tests showed his blood pressure was now in a healthy range, and he could officially be his wife's kidney donor. On Feb. 24 of this year, they went into a four-hour-long surgery together and came out smiling.
