Hi @jeanne5009 I hope all goes well for your friend's recovery and for you with your upcoming transplant.
You raise an interesting thought with your comment 'Likely never will be totally over for me.'
I have tried to explain to many folks, after the loss of my wife and with the pandemic, that I view the future without using the word 'normal' or 'new normal'. To me using that phraseology leads one to be always looking back and measuring the future based on the past. Our lives, once we have a major change, are never the same — we can't go back, I prefer to not to look back wishing for something that will never occur, but rather admit life is now simply different!
I am glad your caregiving — for someone else and for yourself is providing a beneficial foundation for you!
