My husband's oldest son, Mark, is scheduled to receive a kidney transplant tomorrow morning at 8 o'clock. The call came this afternoon at about 4:30. Not only that, but tomorrow is his 50th birthday. Not only that, he and his fiance, who had planned to be married on Sunday, January 1st, took their vows tonight. Not only that, we got to listen via Droids on speaker phone. Interestingly, his Dad (my DH) received his kidney transplant on Thanksgiving Day, 2004. They both have the same hereditary disease, Polycystic Kidney Disease. DH's sister got her new kidneys two years ago. The wait is always frustratingly long, and my response afterwards is always the same, "I never thought it would actually happen." But it actually does. Thank you, Lord.
