Drawing 346 ~ in response to the news that a friend of ours had just undergone a heart transplant. Some dear soul gifted their heart to him over the weekend.
If only the family of that dear person would know the difference their dear one is making. ( notes continued below)
Post Script: The transplant surgeon, from Brazil, holds a moment of silence with all the teams in the OR, giving thanks to the donor and asking for blessing for the heart in its new environment. This is a standard practice in his home country, and he has now instituted the practice here at Toronto General Hospital transplant surgery.
He also personally “received” the heart from the donor centre late Saturday night.
What an extraordinary human being.
