I’m thoroughly enjoying this Christmas season. I mean, apart from all the normal bickering about “the reason for the season,” I’m enjoying looking at Christmas lights, hearing Christmas carols and opening cards brought each day by the postman. (Aside: I … Continue reading
My Aunt Betty just got the call! She’s heading to Lahey for her liver transplant! Pray! I’m so excited for her. Remember when I was at the stage when I couldn’t stay out of the hospital for more than 10 … Continue reading
Boobs. It’s National Boob Month. Football players wear pink cleats, baseball players swing pink bats and teenage boys get tossed out of school for wearing t-shirts proclaiming, “I like boobies!” We all know they are just trying to get away … Continue reading
I have a cold. Yeah, so what, who doesn’t? Yesterday I realized I also have a new label slapped on my back as I heard myself tell someone, “I’m immunosuppressed.” I never thought that would be part of my introductions. … Continue reading
I’ve had a few experiences in the last week that I don’t really know how to process. I’m feeling kind of down. Okay, I’ll spill it. I met a few organ donor families who are filled with grief. I feel … Continue reading
I love vanilla soft serve ice cream. My wife hates it. Since most soft serve places don’t offer hard ice cream we usually end up at shops with pretty teenage scooper girls digging into ice cream buckets. While I prefer … Continue reading
Saturday day was awesome. For the first time since I can remember I felt 98% normal. I felt like I was not one of the .000017% percent of Americans receiving a liver transplant this year. I felt like Pinochio after … Continue reading
My friend AJ could sell an ice cube to an Eskimo. He’s a people person with an enthusiasm and positive attitude that will not quit. It’s like he has a magnet inside him that makes you want to be around him. … Continue reading
The antibiotics did not trigger a “code blue” and are now waging war with the e.coli in my system. The last cephalosporin I took was quite an event culminating with a team of 12 reviving me. My doc is not … Continue reading
I share the following from one of my readers who is writing his own story in the face of suffering… God bless you Scott. I totally agree with you. I went through a very debilitating illness myself two years ago. … Continue reading
“Hey kid! What’s your story?” I can hear my dad asking. It’s a bit of a strange question, isn’t it? I mean, if you’ve never heard it asked before, how might you answer? Is he asking what my favorite story … Continue reading
My reader and now online friend, Kathleen Heseltine, sent me this hymn excerpt tonight in a Facebook message. She has been a consistent encouragement to me during this transplant journey of mine. As soon as I started reading these familiar … Continue reading
Yupp, that’s it, Robin’s preggers. Haha . Noooooo, not really. But we do have a new baby, in a way. We now have a four month old miniature schnauzer puppy. We got her yesterday as a gift from my sisters. … Continue reading
