First off, I want to thank Catholic Herald Editor Mary C. Uhler for letting me borrow the Editorial page this week.

As many of you saw in last week's edition, Mary was taken to the hospital after a serious medical episode.

You dear readers will be happy to know that she's currently at home, resting and recovering.

I'm sure she'll tell you more about what happened and what she went through in a future issue.

Know that she has greatly appreciated all of your prayers and thoughts.

Here, at our offices, the situation with Mary was just one of many things we have had to deal with over the last few weeks.

It was about a little girl from Indiana who is now pursuing her dreams after suffering from kidney failure. She was fortunate to receive a kidney transplant in the nick of time with the help of the Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA).
