Out of the Blue

Phone rings. It’s the Rogosin transplant clinic.

“We wanted to tell you that your donor has passed screening so we’d like to make an appointment for you both to come in.”


I’m confused as we start discussing dates, I’m on autopilot. I finally connect two synapses, and ask “Um… which donor are we speaking of?”

She tells me. I had no idea this person was even getting tested, much less had gone through at least the initial screening process already. This came as a total surprise.

We have not spoken yet- I don’t even know if she is aware i know- and Rogosin is leaving it to me to tell her the news. I’ll give more details after we’ve spoken, I have more info… and my head stops spinning.

    • So does that mean it’s a for sure thing if the donor doesn’t back out? Or is the testing just starting?

      I hope you get to feast on a new kidney!

      • Not at all…

        She’s only gone through a phone screening. Thursday we go for the first blood test. That will tell us if we should bother doing any further testing. Nothing is certain- it’s just a chance.
