Thank you Card for my Donor Family

I've been working on sending out thank you notes to some special people and this one is extra special.  It's to my donor family thanking them for their most precious gift of life.  I was able to include a photo of me, I chose one taken on my last birthday.

I used paper from My Minds Eye, Spellbinders Label 20 and Want2Scrap bling.

My oh My, I'm Gonna Have to Change my Blog Name

On January 23, 2013 I celebrated my 20th Heart Transplant Anniversary.  My daughter Katie and I went to breakfast and stopped by a jewelry store to pick up a bead for my Pandora Bracelet.  

That night, I got the call that a New Heart was available for me.

In April, I was diagnosed with Cardiac Allograft Vasculopathy, a disease of the transplanted heart, and treatment is retransplantation.  Between April and January I had 14 stents put in to keep my heart going.

So we got to the hospital, along with family and friends and they had me in the operating room that night.  They finished on January 24.

So I need to change the name of my blog to Beverly 3 Hearts.  lol

Here's a layout I did of getting the call.

One of my scrapbook.com buddies who is also a transplant recipient send me a box of goodies all from the DCWV Rock Star line.  My girls had a caringbridge.org site set up and they kept referring to me as a "Rock Star".  These pages are done with that line.
