Then the call came before we could change doctors and he has been under Stanford's care. In the meantime I found a great new primary doctor. So today Marty went to establish.
The doctor is reading over his medical history and sees he is a diabetic. He says, " What do you take to control your diabetes?" and Marty says, "Nothing."
The doctor gets this look like " Oh this is going to be a mess!"
Marty says, " I got a new pancreas!"
It was a priceless moment. Nothing can describe the joy that comes from those words. The sacrifice another family made to give us that moment wasn't priceless, it came at a heavy cost. I hope someday they know the joy their loved one brings to us daily.
