A year ago yesterday is the day I received the call!! What memories and emotions flood through me. Please keep my donor's family in your thoughts and prayers this week. I have heard from them by a card thru LifeBanc but we still haven't disclosed our information to each other. I'm so thankful for them reaching out to me. I can't begin to imagine the heartache their family has gone through this past year. So while I celebrate my First Transplant Anniversary, there's a family broken hearted. Thank you for keeping them in prayer with me also.
We have reminisced and gone thru pics on phones of today, June 6 & 7. The day was long, testing, prepping, phone calls, praying, tears, smiles, anxious, exciting, nausea, vomiting, anticipation,waiting, more praying, nervous, trying to remain calm for three precious kids crying....and yet through it all God surrounded me with His peace. I am so thankful to God for what has taken place within a year. I feel like I have my life back. I still have issues now and then pop up, but would rather have them than throwing up over 8 times a day and being on TPN still. So grateful to God, my donor's family, my Transplant Team, my Family, my church family, friends, and a caring community. I have not walked this alone but I have had many people praying all over the world for me. You have shown your love and support to me in so many ways through prayers, phone calls, emails, cards, texts, meals, gift cards, and my funding page. My heart is overwhelmed by the support you've shown when I look at cards and emails just from last year! God is so faithful and and good to me. I feel so blessed, beyond blessed!!
