We have spent the last 2 months living in the world of 'if this - then that' and we are still here. We've spent a lot of time waiting for the next results or the next plan. Now we wait again for Stanford's decision and then maybe their next plan. And then we wait for a heart. Someone out there has made the decision to be a donor - and that same someone will be a match for Kevin. That is an immense thought. We spoke to the Social Worker at Mayo about this very subject. The realization that someone needed to die in order to give life to Kevin seemed tragic. She reminded us that the donor and their family, in their sorrow, feel at peace in returning life to another. Another great blessing.
Be a donor and donate blood.
