The family watched with sadness as showering became like running a marathon. Folding laundry became too much.
This is a note from my mom to the world, a few hours after getting a single lung transplant on 2/14. She still had the breathing tube in, but wanted to share her joy and amazement. Mom’s recovering well, and should be out of the hospital in the next day or two.
In the grander scheme of things, someone had to give their life for this second chance so we are all beyond grateful. We honor the dead by living the best life possible.
And we’re going to do it live.
