And In The End

My mom died this morning, a little after nine. It was rather peaceful.

Her liver, pancreas, and kidneys are usable – the liver to one person, one kidney to another, the second kidney and pancreas to a third. Her lungs looked good from blood tests, but they’ll need to examine them up close before knowing if they can be used for a fourth person. Edit: The lungs proved usable, but the liver did not. Still, that’s three lives changed for the better.

I’m not sure what else to say. I might have actual words later on. Right now silence is very comforting.
