Three Years

Three years ago today I received the best gift a ever, a new lease on life due to a life-saving heart transplant. I am thankful every day for the family that gave me their loved one's heart. I send my love to that family today and celebrate all that I have accomplished in my bonus years. Without the person that donated life I would never have graduated high
school, gone to college, or become independent. Today I am successfully beginning my second semester of college with more new friends and great experiences than I could have ever imagined three years ago. Yesterday it was confirmed that I am rejection free and basically healthy with a cardiac weatherization and biopsy. Another zero never hurts.
Happy Birthday to me.

Happy birthday dear daughter. It has been uplifting to see you grow (literally) and mature since the transplant recovery. You have endured so much with grace and compassion for others. You will always be my hero. (...and you gotta love spell check, turning "catheterization" into "weatherization")
