Well I'm actually posting this while sitting in Shawn's hospital room, he is the most handsome patient in the joint if I do say so myself.
He's looking a bit puffy, eating like a pig and in very good spirits at the moment.
It's funny when we were gearing up for transplant they kept telling us that transplant was trading one "disease" for another and I didn't really get it. Now I think I do.
For the last month I have been so high, thinking that my Shawn was the exception to the rule, probably bordering on arrogance but now I feel like I've had a good spanking.
I know that this is not horrible and I know that this is "common" but it's still a bubble burster. (burster is not a real word)
So now I've done a bit of crying and whining.
I'm grateful. I'm grateful for so many things in my life. My beautiful new home, my wonderful family. My friends. People I see everyday who smile back at me and some that don't. I'm grateful, my husband, who was recently dying is now living.
I'm grateful for the gorgeous seaglass that washes up onto my beach with every tide.
I'm grateful I live on a beach.
I am extremely grateful for my friends on CF2Chat. Without their support I would most surely be in a very different state of mind.
I am grateful to God.
Rest in Peace Aunt Marybeth
