Oh We’re on Our Way…

Growing up, when we Lerner kids would head to Vineland, NJ for a visit we’d have to sing at least a couple verses of “We’re on our way, OH we’re on our way, on our way to Grandma’s farm!” (If you’re not familiar, listen here, but substitute “Grandma” – and imagine 3-4 kids under 12 singing it…along with Matilda, for those who knew her.)

But it wasn’t just a placeholder nursery rhyme for us – we’d usually be visiting Grandma Gussie (Great Grandma, technically, but that doesn’t fit the melody) and she actually owned a farm with a barn and growing things and animals and everything.  Even an attached country store where kids would be dispatched to get a can of tuna to make lunch – weirdly enough, one of my most vivid memories of the farm.

But I digress.

I’m reminded of the song today as we can announce that Eliana is, finally, active on the list for a possible deceased donor kidney.  Word came in at the end of last week, and we’re just on pins and needles now.  Could be tomorrow (literally), could be a week, could be months…but we are definitely On Our Way.

All together now…”We’re on our way, OH we’re on our way, on our way to possibly receiving a deceased donor kidney!…”

    The tuna was good but the rye bread was great. Hope Eliana will soon be on the next part of her journey
