6 Month Anniversary!

Hi friends,today is a Very Special Day for me! Today is my 6 month anniversary post transplant!!! I can't believe it! My DH and I relived the whole journey since the 29th,which was when I got the call and then flown to the hospital which is a 10 hr drive (in a car) and then waited til the 30th at 7:30 pm to get into the OR to get everything started. So as of this morning the 31 st at 5:30 am,I have had my new liver!!!!
I AM SO GREATFUL TO THE DONOR AND HIS OR HER FAMILY for giving me the GIFT OF LIFE! I am sobbing as I type this,one cannot imagine what it is until you go through this. I thought after I get my new liver our lives will be so wonderful!!!! In many ways it is but in other ways,it is still hard.
Anyways,I don't want to bore you with this,but my card today,the sentiment is with my donor in my mind and the Smile sentiment is for me...I can't smile enough for having this gift!!!

How do you like my card? I like how it turned out! Hope you are all having a super duper day!
