You never know who your next client will be.
Recently, I was handed a file to place an order for furniture, and the name of the client intrigued me. The name “Desert Transplants” looked familiar. I began the process of placing the order, and I needed some additional information from the client. I soon realized that the practice belonged to my husband’s kidney transplant surgeon!
A year ago, today, my husband Nate and I underwent kidney transplant surgery. He was the recipient of kidney from an anonymous donor, and I was a donor to an anonymous recipient.
I was so excited to share our story with the office manager! I just wanted to say thank you again and let them know that they were working with a patient’s wife.
For such a big place, it sure is a small world.
Here’s a picture of Nate, Winnie (transplant coordinator), and Darryl (Nate’s donor) – top left, Me and Nate – right, and Me and Shawna (my recipient) – bottom left:
