Forum Style

Because today marks the tenth anniversary of my multivisceral transplant in which I got a new spleen, liver, pancreas, stomach, small and large intestine, I want to:

T: Thank

E: Every

N: Name

T: That

E: Encouraged

N: Now!!

This forum here has been an integral part of my journey since my transplant, and I feel this is a good day to express my gratitude to everyone here. For me:

T: Transplants

R: Recall

A: And

N: Name

S: Special

P: People

L: Loving

A: Another's

N: Needs

T: Thoroughly.

This refers not only to the donor and donor family, but also to those people who have helped to make the transplant a lasting success after the surgery. I would not have done as well as I have if I did not have the support of others. This forum is a great reminder too of people coming together to help each other. I am so happy to reach this milestone of ten years and to be able to share it with you. If it had not been for the transplant, I would have died and came close. Thank  you for all that you have done to help make my journey possible. I still have problems, as my gastroparesis did come back and I still struggle with a low weight, but the opportunity to be alive and to share my moments with others is too valuable to be taken for granted. I feel any fights I have are worth it. This forum has helped to keep hope alive in me because it helps to remind me why I am here: to reach out to and help others. May all have a blessed day. Many, many hugs are being sent to you through these words I write.


Warm regards,
