"GM" knows that the tissue she harvests and transports is going somewhere it's needed, so "the process is somewhat time-sensitive, but not as much as you would think. Especially since the majority of removals I do are corneas, you can plan out your day a little bit according to what needs to be done."
You wouldn't think the transportation of eyeballs could be a boring errand run, but GM's average afternoon doesn't look too different from your mom's, minus all of the sex with us. "Let's say you just removed some corneas," she continues. "They are preserved in chemicals to keep them fresh, plus they are in an ice cooler. You get a call from a hospital nearby that you need to remove another pair of corneas, and it's on the way to the airport anyway. You can literally leave eyes in your car, go do the other removal, preserve the second pair, pack them up in an ASAP shipping container, and take them to the airport." It's a weird day from the eyes' perspective, but same old, same old for GM.
But make sure to hide 'em under the seat. You don't want to explain to a blind kid how their new eyes were stolen and sold for Oxycontin.
