Who has a heart birthday????? People like me who have had a Heart Transplant! Nineteen years ago I received the heart of a 22 year old man. His gift of life has allowed me to:
* Raise 3 daughters now ages 28, 24 and 19
* See the wedding of one daughter to a wonderful man.
* Experience being a Mimi (Grandma) to 3 year old Dominic
* See my brother marry a wonderful woman
* Meet my five Nephews and two Nieces
* See my cousin give my other cousin her kidney.
* Participate in five US Transplant games and win 10 medals in swimming.
* Have the heartbreak of losing both of my husbands parents.
* Celebrate 31 years of marriage to my love.
* Wake up and celebrate life for 19 years.
* Make many memories with family and friends.
