Meghan got a ride home from school for Easter weekend with a sorority sister, Meghan G. A year ago, Meghan G's dad was put on a list for a new liver. Recently, his name went to the top of the list. As I understand it, that means his health had deteriorated to the point it was becoming urgent, but he was still healthy enough to undergo the surgery.
They got a call early on Easter morning that a new liver became available.
The entire range of meaning of that was not lost on anyone. While Meghan G's family has been given new hope, another family is suffering on this Easter Sunday.
He is undergoing the surgery right now. God be with him and his family as they go through this. God be with the donor's family while they suffer their loss, and bless them for making the decision that has helped other families.
UPDATE: The surgery went well. Hopefully, all others benefitting from the generosity of the donor and his/her family are doing as well.
