Phase 2: Say a little prayer right now?


(Josh will be 25 in August. He is a is getting his doctorate in molecular pharmacolology at Weill-Cornell in Manhattan and working at the Sloan Kettering research lab. Josh loves to have a lot of fun.)

Right now, two of my boys are at Lahey Clinic in Burlington, MA to learn just what it means to be a live liver donor. My oldest son Josh is there until Friday going through MRI, CT Scan, biopsopy, and a battery of tests to see if he is a great match.

Jake Groom, my son-in law, is there for all the information too. That young man amazes me. I’ve had the priviledge of knowing him for 7 or 8 years and now he’s my daughter’s husband. Jake has always fit our family even better than one of OJ’s gloves!

So … pray. Pray for clarity. Pray for wisdom. and pray that test results will be clear for Josh this week as the first to go through full spectrum.

This sure is a weird place for this daddy to sit. I don’t want them to do this for me but the gift of love makes me weep. I am blessed with numerous people on my list who are willing to get cut for me — my nephew and niece, my sisters and friends. Even a YANKEE FAN!!! Oh man … the Lord wouldn’t do that, would HE?


(Jake Groom married my little girl on July 2. He was a part of our family long before that. Jake is one of the most creative, fun guys you will ever meet. He’s crazy just like us!)

    I cry and I pray because of your wonderful faith in our Big God. God would send donors, wouldn’t He. You’re the King’s kid.
