Thanks to living organ transplant, our plan to be cool old ladies carries on. We’re grateful for that. So is our mother Claire, a no-nonsense New England yankee who tries to stare down problems. Somewhere, our father and brother, both Bill, who both died too young from heart disease, helped us through too. Kristin’s awesome teenage sons never had a doubt that she would get back to health. And that their daily dialogue would get back to reminders that the floor is not a closet and soda is not a breakfast food. The mundane moments in life can be the glorious ones. We’re so thankful to have more of those.
