the news

Posted by pala on 2/20/03 at 11:00 (110023)

just heard on the news that the girl who got the wrong heart and lungs was offered new ones by an elderly woman who said she had lived a long life and if it would help she would give hers up for this young life. there are some very altruistic folks in the world. it brought tears to my eyes.

or maybe it is the wisdom of age. my own father became very mellow and altruistic as he reached very old age, with a similar concern for young life.

How touching! I hope that a donor is found soon, and that this little girl recovers to live a long, productive, and happy life. I pray that something positive is learned from this tragic situation.

Happy trails....

I understood that they had a donor - and they have since given her second transplant...
