Outlook Brightens After a New Kidney (Patient Profile from the New York Times)

This is a profile of a patient I know well. From The New York Times:
Noemi Pinto and Frank Talavera shared an unusual honeymoon. Several hours after exchanging vows at City Hall in late September, Mr. Talavera held his wife's hand as she was wheeled into an operating room for a kidney transplant. He had asked her to marry him several times during their seven-year relationship, and Ms. Pinto had always refused, saying their relationship didn't need a piece of paper for validation. This time, it was she who popped not the question, but the answer.
