My Birthday full of surprises
I was sitting home all alone on my 34th birthday so I figured I would go get my hair cut. My appointment was for noon but the hair dresser was running about a half hour behind. So I showed up at 12:30. They told me it was going to be at least another half hour. I figured I had nothing else to do so I waited. At 1:15, I was still waiting and my cell phone rang. It was Andrea. I asked her what she was doing and she said she was just sitting in her car. Of course, I asked where she was and she was in my drive way. Yeah. I gave her directions to the Salon. She got there in about 5 minutes. When she walked in, I gave her a big hug and then my cell phone beep and said I had a new message. I looked at Andrea and asked if she just left me a message. Nope. So I figured I would check my messages. It was Brigham and Women's Hospital waiting me to call ASAP. My face turned white. Andrea helped me get the number down and we paged the doctor back. In a minute, the Doctor called me back and said they thought they had a donor for me but within the 5 minutes of phone tag the donor was not a match. Well, I guess I know where I am on the list. Happy Birthday to me and Happy New Year to all of you!
