  •  Happy Birthday Katherine ! 

  • I hope everything progresses smoothly for you and that your wait will be short so you can have some quality of life again.  I got my heart in Dec. 2010.  It was strange to feel so good!!!  and I  was "here" for my daughter's wedding on the beach.  I, also, had a career in early childhood ed and teaching/training daycare teachers.  Many blessings to you.

  • Hello Katherine, welcome to tx freinds, glad you joined. Hope your listed very soon, stay positive. Take care.
