I was not prepared for the emotion that yesterday (9/8) brought though I had tried to prepare for that day in my mind for a while once I knew it was coming. Such a mix of feelings. Relief, disbelief, gratitude, & a degree of sadness. I had prepared for this day for a long time, including the possibility I might not qualify for a transplant because of kidney issues or some other circumstance that might have popped up in testing. Luckily, this is not the case.
