My friends Marty and Tina just found out that their six year old son, Luke, needs a heart transplant. Tina had one at 18, but it was from the same thing my dad had which can be caused by a virus. Evidently not in her case and their son has it.
Marty is a national class athlete, Tina trains horses, they are a very active family... this news is unimaginable.
Prayers, good thoughts, etc of course.
Inside me is a thin woman trying to get out. I usually shut the bitch up with a martini.
