To be blunt...shit is getting real. I've had some serious health setbacks. I've been in the hospital for about 3 weeks. I'm home now and so grateful for the peace and quiet. In the middle of all of this, Adam had surgery on his knee to repair a torn minscus.
I thought I would take a moment to reflect on some patterns in my writing, some secrets about writing about death, dying and surviving.
This is my first public speaking event about my heart transplant. I talked about my journey and the need for people to register as organ donors.
A 4 year update, since the day I was list on the Heart Transplant Wait List. "As of today at 4:26:05 CST I'm officially on the ♡ Transplant List! I'm excited because I've given blood, sweat & tears since mid-June to this process, so I'm relieved. I'm also fearful. Mixed emotions-today is a big day. I'm so grateful to you for your ongoing support. I need it!"
