What an incredible gift, hope.

Awww, yay.

Am def a donor. Have been since I was 17 :)

How perfectly wonderful. I hope the surgery went smoothly and Peter recovers fast and well. Will definetly check in on him again... What an amazing thing organ donation is and remains, however often one reads these stories about 'the call'.

(I've only caught up with your last few posts - hoping so much it is something along the lines of lab error or that the worrying numbers improve radically.)

What great news, Sarah - this is so quick, esp. for an adult! (But than heart-transplants might be quite different from liver-transplants.)
Best wishes for Peter!

Falling Down, November 2004

  • Balloon in hand, my 4-year-old
    twirled across the kitchen floor,
    singing nonsense words
    in her own key.
    "It's my gift!" she declared
    to the world at large, which
    was really only me,
    sitting at the table. Enough
    twirling, and she lost
    her balance, tumbling
    to the floor in a theatrical
    slapstick of elbows and knees.

    She lay on her back
    for a few seconds,
    staring
    at the textured ceiling
    with the mysterious
    spaghetti sauce stain.
    Suddenly she
    began
    flapping her arms and legs
    there on the floor, as if to swish
    the imaginary snow
    into a snow angel.

    "Falling down is also a gift!" says she.
