Joost, I am actually feeling terrific!  I am much stronger than I was before my transplant, suffering from cholangitis/blood infections every month.  I am just getting stronger and healthier each and every day!  Most everything for me has stayed the same or went back to normal except for at first I was craving Ice cream like crazy and I also enjoy working out now.  I think the transplant motivated me and maybe to offset the ice cream:).  I did have strange dreams while sedated during and after my transplant that made me wake to say that I had a transplant from a 17 year old boy.  I found out months later that was the case.  Not sure if maybe the doctors said it while I was in operating room or what???  My mom also had the same feeling, but no one told her and she was never sedated ;)  Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

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
