Share how your transplant experience changed your life?

I had my Liver transplant on July 3, 2013,on my husband and my 30th anniversary, I had been in the hospital for over a week, which I have no recollection of, and my kidneys started failing and they had to do an emergency Liver transplant, I had a MELD Score of 39 I had been diagnosed in 2000 with HepC and cirrhosis of the liver in 2008. I am so grateful to my donor family and my surgeon and his team, and all of the nurses that took such good care of me as well as my husband and my daughter who never left my side for long, through this life giving and life changing event. I only had a week to live and out of the States of Texas and Oklahoma I was #1 on the liver transplant list. I am still recovering 4 months later, but I am so Happy and thankful to be alive and hopefully be here for my family for a long time. It was a long road to get to this place and I didn't always make the right or wisest decisions, but for some reason thank God he wasn't done with me yet, and I am sure he will reveal to me just what that is, in his time.

When I love, it is forever. I am stubborn as the day is long, but can always be lead by love, but if you say I can't do something, I will do my best to prove you wrong.
