On Monday, we received news that we have been hoping for. My son Scott has been placed on the active kidney transplant list. It is an answe to prayer. We have been doing nocturnal home hemodialysis for nine years. He has done well with this but life will be so much simpler with a transplant.
Donation is a gift of life. We can never repay such a gift but hope it will give the family of the donor some comfort as they grieve their loss. This was brought even more vivid to us as we learned that the hostess at one of our favorite restaurants suddenly lost her 19 year old son this week. He was on life support until they determined there was no brain activity. The family are donating his organs. My heart so goes out to her and the family.
