Right now, as I write this, my father is in Hartford, Connecticut. Under the knife. He is somewhere in the process of giving his kidney to his sister.
I haven't written about it earlier, because it was not really my topic to write about. He writes about his decision and the donation process eloquently in a series of posts on his blog starting here.
He has entered this life adventure as he does everything: with grace, humility, appreciation and above all, humor. I am very lucky to have him in my life and I am grateful for it.
So if you have any good thoughts to spare today, please send them to my father and my aunt.
