Thank-you for the Birthday wishes.  I have been in the hospital the past two weeks.  My transplanted lungs are doing great, however I seem to keep going into Atrial Fibrillation and had a bleed around my heart.  Got a helo ride to my Transplant Center and I am now back on my feet.  Still need to deal with the Atrial Fibrillation, but first need to get the body settled down some.  Thank again for the birthday wishes, spent in the hospital, but spent still with hope.

Gary,

I'm so  sorry  to hear  about this.    Sending  prayers  for a  full  recovery.

As  Burnie  mentioned,  we  were  wondering  about you  since you're  never away  for  too  long!

Prayers  for you  and  Wanda!

Take  care!

Today April 16th

Today at 0700, 4 years ago I received the gift of Life.  It would be mid day tomorrow that I would awake and learn that I was breathing on my own.  Inside my chest, two pure young lungs were becoming apart of me and my days ahead.  No longer hooked to a machine to keep me breathing I would soon be standing on my own.  Inside of me I could feel Tammy joining my life energy and I could feel her love.  To everyone have a great day and stay safe.  I still have much to think about.See More
