Time for an update on liver, life and love…

It’s been awhile since I’ve written a blog post. Someone nudged me just last week. So, here goes!

First, in liver news, my liver is still behaving fine. I’ll go for blood labs soon to do all the normal AST/ALT /INR/Creatinine reports to give me a measure. I still have some normal side effects from my meds but they are nothing to spend too much time complaining about because I am alive. 🙂

Second, in life news. I’m loving life and enjoying my two new grandchildren. They are 7 and 9 months old and now hold out their arms for me to take them. Is there anything better than that? My little church where I am now pastor is way cool and full of people I love a lot. My photography stuff is going well and always introducing me to new people. I had surgery on the veins in my legs back in May and that crushed my summer cycling goals but I am planning to ride in this weekend’s autism ride to get back at it.

Third, love. What do you love? Where do you invest your life? I think, before transplant, being successful at what I did was really my top priority. Doing things well and winning accolades and praise was what drove me. Now, after transplant, it’s relationships. Relationships ran a close second before but now the success stuff has dropped down quite a bit. I love being with others, investing in others, building new relationships and sharing life. I’m spending my time on loving others a lot more now. In December I will head back to Guatemala for the second time this year to shoot marketing photos for AMG. AMG works to help about 8,000 children trapped in third world poverty. It’s amazing that I have a life to poor into stuff like that now. I look forward to Sundays, family days and sitting on my lawn with others. I always knew that my God wanted me to love him and love others more than anything else, but now I think I understand why. Life is so much more fulfilling.

Life is good. I am so very thankful that I get to live it!
