As a transplant recipient I am happy for Lou Reed but how about acknowledging the donor or the donor’s families loss. There are liver transplants that can be done with living donors but she sounds cold,
“You send out two planes one for the donor, one for the recipient at the same time. You bring the donor in live, you take him off life support. It’s a technological feat.
“I was completely awestruck. I find certain things about technology truly, deeply inspiring.”
No compassion for the donor or the family. Maybe, it was an exerpt of the interview.
My oldest brother had a liver transplant in 1989, he passed away 5 years ago and it wasn’t due to his liver. It’s not easy dealing with a new liver it changed his life forever but it can be done. Prayers for a long healthy life!
