But...

Tragic news, comic footnote:

It seems the Duke University Medical Center has inadvertently (!) performed a transplant which gave the recipient a heart and lung which don't match her blood type. This is, of course, a Bad Thing, but plenty of people report bad. I report surreal!

This article in the Raleigh News and Observer covers the story, but ends:

Mahoney said he is doing all he can to find another heart-lung set. He urged potential donors to contact him at (919) 495-2112 or www.4jhc.org, or Carolina Donor Services at (800) 200-2672.
Now, perhaps I misunderstand what it means to "donate a heart and a lung", but I imagine it's not something you call about first.
