There’ve been some teary moments today. A little tension. Some grateful hugging among strangers, bonded by two people we love.
But once we got the word that Garrett was out, and the kidney already kicking in, Gary and some of the sweet friends who have been here all day came to see Jerran for the first time since he dropped 6 ounces of kidney.
Gary came straight over to the bed and hugged Jerran, breaking down in tears, saying, “Thank you, thank you. I love you.” They both cried for a good long time. Cause cops are tough like that.
Then Gary hugged each member of the family, and JD and Don, friends of the Higgins who have been here all day. “Thank you for that prayer,” he said to Don, “It worked.”
Well, shoot. Now we’re all crying. Tears of joy.
