Did you know...

...that Butterflies are the symbol of transplant.

I met another great lady that had a liver transplant,she is not a blogger,I met her through an organ tx site. She is about 8 hrs from where I live and she has been so helpful and supportive.

She told me that when she had her tx,they told her at the hospital that the Butterfly is the symbol for transplants. Now what is really freaky is, the previous week,I hadn't even met her then.
We had gone to our camp over night and spent the saturday cause it was so nice. I was lying in the lounge chair and AL was in the camper getting something when a Butterfly landed on my big toe and sat there for maybe 5 seconds. Just enough time for Al to see it.

The following week I met Anne,my new tx friend and she tells me that butterflies are a symbol for transplants...well I got shivers up my spine let me tell you. So I think you will be seeing alot of cards with butterflies!!!!

Enjoy your day!
Hugs,Diane

Huh! Didn't know that!? But it would only make sense as it's also the symbol for new life, and that's what you have when you get a transplant right? :) Love ya Diane and am praying for you and Al.
