Today I celebrate the 25th anniversary of my liver transplant at Mayo Rochester. There have been peaks and valleys but I am alive and have good quality of life. There are no words to express enough thankfulness to the donor and to the family of the donor as well as to Mayo Arizona who has kept the candle lit for all these years. Most of all I am thankful for an amazing husband who never wavered, no matter how hopeless some of those valleys were over 25 years. I hope my post makes you all realize that YES! it is doable, one day at a time and one foot in front of the other. A transplant truly is a second chance at life, don't squander it. Be a good steward to your donated organ, treat it with respect and appreciation for the second chance it is giving you.
