Today our dad has had his transplanted heart for 5 years! We can't thank his donor family enough for this precious gift and we can't thank dad's "Boston Girl" enough for saving his life! Dad has one strong heart and he never takes it for granted. He takes good care of himself with proper diet (well, there is that occasional pizza) and lots of exercise and he volunteers at the hospital helping and encouraging patients who are waiting for their miracles to happen!
The transplant community believes in celebrating your new heart with a new birth-day so this means that dad actually has 2 birthdays!
The first one happened a couple of weeks ago when he came home from Rhode Island for the night and the second one is today so that means BIGTIME celebrations!
We are grabbing Tinny, the TinMan and our special dindin bag that holds mom and dad's water bottles and our ice cream spoon and we're celebrating!We're heading to Glenwood for burgers and fries and then we'll be off to Wentworth's for celebration ice cream! whooooooooohooooooooo We can't wait!
Happy transplant anniversary and birth-day, dad! And thank you so much, Boston Girl for saving our dad's life! We are so very thankful! We love our dad!
So until next time..................
Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
