This Week in Transplant News

Sweet, sweet innovation
Because science, that's why

Sad news from South Jersey. And please, please wear your seat belts. They really do make a difference.

Living kidney donation story from Hub City. Shout out to all my transplant peeps!

I've been having mixed feelings about the new X-files. You gotta love Scully and Mulder: the chemistry, the corny jokes and snappy comebacks, David Duchovny's fine line dancing. But why do they suck at medical stuff? Every ICU and OR is dim. Maybe Chris Carter is setting a mood, but to me it looks like they're on generator power. And when Scully's mom is dying..."she's brain dead, she's in a persistent vegetative state." And then they have to cart her body away quickly because, "she's an organ donor" after she goes into asystole. It may be minor, I know. And don't even get me started on this one. Oy.
