What’s the traditional 23rd anniversary gift? Probably not a major organ, but that’s what a husband gave his blushing bride last month at a hospital in Hollywood, Florida, ahead of their 23rd wedding anniversary this week. “This is an amazing, amazing gift. God put this man into my life for a reason,” Monica Calle said about husband Cesar in a video shared Tuesday by the Memorial Healthcare System’s Facebook page. Not only is it rare for a spouse to be a patient’s organ-donor match, but the February 19 procedure was also the Memorial Transplant Institute’s first kidney transplant. “We couldn’t have picked a better couple to be our first transplant,” Dr. Tjasa Hranjec says. “We look forward to many, many more in the future.”
