Last year on this date I was offering up prayers for my friend Justin. Today he posted this message:
One year ago today, after a twenty month wait, I received the miracle of a new life when a donor heart, an almost perfect match, became available and was transplanted! My weakened heart and semi-implanted life support system came out from here, and the donor heart was sewn into place.
I am extremely grateful to my donor, whose identity is not yet known to me. I get to celebrate my re-birthday by having a stress test. I feel better than I have in years! Please consider becoming an organ donor if you are able. It is wonderful to live again!
What a beautiful way to begin a Monday.
