So, unlike all my other posts in Museum Month, this one isn’t going to be about a museum, but rather about the best, worst, scariest, and most amazing thing I’ve ever done. Today, November 21 is the one-year anniversary of my kidney donor surgery. Not exactly a fun travel story and it still leaves me more speechless than snarky, but for any and all readers who don’t know much about organ donation (the living kind like I did, or the “agree to it on your drivers license” kind), I am happy to talk about it, because it DOES save lives. And I’m thrilled to report that on this one-year anniversary I am doing fine and my father–my kidney recipient–is doing GREAT.
It’s back to the travel and museum review fun times tomorrow. In the meantime: hug your loved ones, enjoy the health that you have, go and try; achieve what you can.
