Happy Reunion

Tracey and I hadn’t seen each other since the wedding. That will be 28 years in July. She lives in California, but visits her elderly parents in Detroit often, so she planned a trip to Kalamazoo this time. It was good catching up with Tracey, who spent most of the day with me. She accompanied Esteban and me to basketball camp after she had picked me up from dialysis and we had lunch together. Between our shared medical problems, and Tracey’s medical experience, it was comforting to have conversations about organ transplants, and how to live your live in the specter of serious illness. I valued our friendship in college. I value it even more now.
