Gage has known that he would need a transplant for a very long time. We used to mention it in passing but started weaving it into everyday conversations like "Gage, what do you want for lunch and did you know that you will be getting a new kidney some day!?"
So yesterday I told Gage that I wouldn’t be able to give him a kidney because of my kidney stones. I said "do you remember when Mommy had kidney stones?"
"Uh-huh. Who’s kidney will I get?"
"That is a great question. We don’t exactly know who will be giving a kidney for you yet. We are trying to find the perfect kidney and all the doctors are helping us!"
"I only want a kidney from someone I know."
"Why is that?"
"Because I need to know Mommy. DUH!"
