This time of year is a celebration of the Saviors birth. Our savior was born so that we could return to our Heavenly Father. His life and sacrifice was truly a gift to all of us. It also makes me think of the sacrifice a family made for me. My donor family. My donor who was a part of my Christmas Miracle 3 years ago. I love a woman I have never met more than her family may ever know. Being an Organ Donor is the true gift of selflessness. Merry Christmas to all the Organ Donor's and their families! May the Lord shower them with blessings for giving others the gift of life.
Here is my "REAL" Christmas wish list:
*Everyone makes the choice to be Organ Donor, so when they no longer need their body, they will save many others in need.
*May a cure be found for Cystic Fibrosis, so that children living with CF will never need a transplant
*For my Donor Family to know how much I love them. Some day I do hope to hear from them.
*My biggest wish is that me and my donor's lungs can continue to live many, many more years in perfect harmony! Thank You donor, friend, Hero, sister, angel. . .you are all these things to me. You not only gave me the gift of life and breath, but you gave me many amazing years to spend with my true love. Merry Christmas!!
...........UPDATE ON SUSANNE.............................................
In case any of you out there are wondering about Susanne who is in Pittsburgh recovering from her transplant I have good news! Well, it's been a tough recovery, as most of us lung transplant recipients know. She has had some bad days and her 'even worse' days. . .but hopefully those are behind her. She seems to be doing a little better. I found out that she has a caring bridge website and her mother Pam is updating it very often! So if you would like to get to know more about Susanne and her journey you can check click on this link: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/susanneheck You might have to set up an account if you don't have one, but you might not have to. I did.
