The hospital just called and apparently my body passes muster. My blood is healthy and shortly we'll begin the process of augmenting stem cell development to prepare for the donation.
In two weeks time, the next step on this journey continues.
Here's my prayer for Yom Kippur: May the Source of Life, Modern Medicine and Science endow Health and Strength to the 49 year old man who will receive my stem cells and may he be written in the Book of Life for another year.
The liturgical poetry is not in the words but the action. I remain in awe of the lengths to which human beings will go in order to save another life.
