Tomorrow, Kidney Mary and her family and me and my family head to St. Barnabas Hospital in Livingston, NJ for family meetings with surgeons and transplant team members to go over pre- and post-transplant schedules and information and for final pre-op blood tests.
In exactly 8 days from today, I will receive a kidney from my friend and neighbor, Mary Eichler! Please, do not worry for me, and I only ask that you keep me in good thought. On the other hand, I would greatly appreciate it if your prayers and cards and thoughtfulness and notes of support go directly to Kidney Mary – after all, SHE, and she alone, is the HERO here.
Here is her address:“Kidney Mary” Eichler 29 Parker Road Long Valley, NJ 07853
