Merry Christmas!

A true Chrismas miracle, for my family anyhow.

My sister really had a visit early this AM that was heaven sent. She got a call to get her long awaited organ transplant! Now hoping for the operation to go without a hitch.

Thank you to the soul who donated it. I am very greatful.

I send my sincere condolence to the family of the donor, who ever they may be.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. ~Mark Twain
