So as we often say, we get our organ transplant 'not just to survive, but to thrive' and enjoy life to the fullest. Having been to the edge with our health issues, recipients tend to appreciate each day of life (despite those daily challenges) so much more than the average person. So looking back (or forward if you want to share a future dream instead), what event in your new life has been your best moment yet?
Personally, mine has been marrying my soul-mate 12 years ago this October 1st, a brave decision on her part given I was 11 years post heart transplant at the time, so that decision was made with a lot of faith in the unknown that lie ahead. Now 12 years later, we still count each day as a very special gift we share.
PS: My soul-mate wife is a 'donor mom' having donated her 13 year old son's organ back in 1997, so we live/share both sides of the donation/transplant life story with love and thanks each and every day.
So what's your story of that 'best day ever' (so far, at least...)?
