I honestly don't know how to put what I am feeling in my heart right now into words. When I decided to fight for a transplant I did it out of selfish reasons. I did it for me. I did it so I wouldn't have to leave Bryan. I thought of a few of my close CF friends who I hoped would also choose to be transplanted when the time came for them. What I didn't think about was how many other people it could have possibly influenced. I am not a great person. I am only strong because I had to be. But despite my flaws, and shortcomings I somehow have been able to help others. I am thankful for that. Tonight I met a woman who has 2 precious little boys in her life who have CF, to hear her tell me that I have given them hope fills my heart and soul with gratitude. I have received e-mails from other CF and CF/Cepacia patients and family members whom I am able to relate to the challenges they are facing. I am grateful that I can. I didn't want my life to have to be the way it was, but looking back I am so appreciative of the things I went through, of the challenges life through at me and at the strength I was forced to find within myself. Thank You to everyone who sends me such beautiful messages and shares your life with me. I would do it all over again knowing that somewhere in someone's life I can in someway help them.
