Of course I’m thankful for my two kidney transplant that has given me almost 36 years of added life. I’m thankful for meeting a wonderful man and we will be celebrating our 25 wedding anniversary April 14. I’m thankful for being able to give birth to our two amazing boys now 21 and 19. I’m just thankful that I’m alive to be experiencing living.
Yours always in the gift of life, living, love and health, Karen glitter-graphics.com

Those who have given me renewed life:
My daughter for selflessly being the live liver organ donor. We have now shared an incredible experience.
My son, for scrubbing the internet, insisting we look into the hospital in Taiwan, where I had my transplant, and for his continued emotional support during a rough time.

And of course to my dear husband, my caretaker who went through so much and persevered out of love.
Thanks to the surgical team for their skill.
