Don’t We All Need a Happy Story?

As I recover from a broken wrist, typing and dictation have been tricky–hence so few posts in recent weeks. But here’s a wonderful and riveting story I want to share about the challenges of navigating a kidney transplant amid the coronavirus (spoiler alert: of course it has a happy ending). The transplant in question just happens to have been performed at the center where I donated to my son, Paul, almost exactly 14 years ago: UNC hospitals in Chapel Hill, NC. Their story is the reverse of ours: their son, Scott, donated to his mother (Margie). I’m happy to see that the Roney family was as closely and warmly supported as we were. Congratulations and warm wishes to you all.
