Our donor letter

With transplant #1 we knew something about our donor family within hours, but #2 was different. All we learned was there was a connection to Puerto Rico. And it stayed that way for three years until the letter arrived, days before the third anniversary of Trenton’s transplant. 

His name is Alberto and we're sharing his mother’s letter. To read it, Click here

These Are The Days

These are the days now that we must savor
And we must enjoy as we can
These are the days that will last forever
You’ve got to hold them in your heart.

~ Van Morrison; These Are The Days

Are You Fighting For Or Against?

Someone Like You

Old friend, why are you so shy
Ain’t like you to hold back
Or hide from the light

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited but I
Couldn’t stay away I couldn’t fight it
I had hoped you’d see my face
And that you be reminded that for me it isn’t over

~ Adele; Someone Like You

 My name is Lynne Robitaille, my daughter Lauren Meizo received her gift of life on Dec. 29, 2013.  During that time I kept a daily journal, which I made into a book

Strength in a Heartbeat, Diary of a Heart Transplant.

You can find it on my website  www.lynnemrobitaille.com

I created this book to let others know they are not alone, before during and after a transplant.  I hope it will bring some comfort to form you others are living the same way you are.  We need to stick together.

Much Love Lynne

For Whom The Bell Tolls

For whom the bell tolls 
Time marches on 
For whom the bell tolls

Take a look to the sky just before you die 
It’s the last time you will!
Blackened roar massive roar fills the crumbling sky 
Shattered goal fills his soul with a ruthless cry 

~ Metallica; For Whom The Bell Tolls

Learning To Fly

“A soul in tension that’s learning to fly
Condition grounded but determined to try
Can’t keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I”

~ Learning To Fly, Pink Floyd

With or Without You

Through the storm, we reach the shore
You gave it all but I want more
And I’m waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you
I can’t live with or without you

~ U2, With or Without You

(I see my heart donor in all things)

Stairway to Heaven

“And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.”
