Nyreek - Always knows when I'm not feeling well and comes to comfort me.. especially after the surgery!  We hadn't seen her in a couple of weeks (she goes off and hides for a while sometimes) and HOURS after I got home she was laying next to my bed…Continue

This is Mickey, he is a 16 year old Terrier mix.  He looks like a pooped out party pup on New Year's Eve.

Our 14-year-old dog Abbey died last month.
The day after she passed away my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey.
She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her.
I told her that I thought we could so, and she dictated these words:

Dear God,
Will you please take care of my dog?
She died yesterday and is with you in heaven.
I miss her very much.
I 'm happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick.
I hope you will play with her.
She likes to swim and play with balls.
I am sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she is my dog.
I really miss her.
Love, Meredith

We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey & Meredith , addressed it to God/Heaven.
We put our return address on it.
Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all the way to heaven. That afternoon she dropped it into the letter box at the post office.
A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet.
I told her that I thought He had.

Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch addressed, 'To Meredith' in an unfamiliar hand.
Meredith opened it.
Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, 'When a Pet Dies.'
Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God in its opened envelope.
On the opposite page was the picture of Abbey & Meredith and this note:

Dear Meredith,
Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big help and I recognized her right away.
Abbey isn't sick anymore.
Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart.
Abbey loved being your dog.
Since we don't need our bodies in heaven, I don't have any pockets to keep your picture in so I'm sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by.
Thank you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you write it and sending it to me.
What a wonderful mother you have.
I picked her especially for you.
I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much.
By the way, I'm easy to find.
I am wherever there is love.

Oh Mary, Hopi is beautiful!  Love her eyes and colorings.  Gorgeous kitty.  Thanks for sharing our mascot all grown up, although I have to say she looks like a big kitten.

Thank you!! Tenth multivisceral transplant anniversary!

Because today marks the tenth anniversary of my multivisceral transplant in which I got a new spleen, liver, pancreas, stomach, small and large intestine, I want to:T: ThankE: EveryN: NameT: ThatE: EncouragedN: Now!!This forum here has been a part of my journey since my transplant, and I feel this is a good day to express my gratitude to everyone here. For me:T: TransplantsR: RecallA: AndN: NameS: SpecialP: PeopleL: LovingA: Another'sN: NeedsT: Thoroughly.This refers not only to the donor and donor family, but also to those people who have helped to make the transplant a lasting success after the surgery. I would not have done as well as I have if I did not have the support of others. This forum is a great reminder too of people coming together to help each other. I am so happy to reach this milestone of ten years and to be able to share it with you. If it had not been for the transplant, I would have died and came close. Thank  you for all that you have done to help…See More

Steve Johnson commented on Keilee-Rae Miller's blog post Sudden onset of High Blood Pressure
"After the transplant my bp slowly went up and has stayed. Metoprolol and lisinopril dosing and that keeps it manageable. Must lose some weight and continue to exercise . Never had bp problems pre transplant but do now."
