Happy Re-birthday to our Dad

Six years ago today our dad received his gift of life - his new heart!

In the transplant world, when you get a new heart, you also get a new birthday so our dad actually has 2 birthdays. 
How lucky is he ~ in more ways than one!
Happy 6th re-birthday, dad!
We love you!

Hey M&M & Dad,
Happy re-birthday to you'll. Will there be re-birthday cake? How about re-birthday ice cream? Pizza?
We kinda know how good it is to have a dad around after an episode. Our's only got 3 stints so not quite as big a miracle as you were blessed to reeive, but still a small miracle. May your dad have many,many more re-birthdays.

Sally said...

WOW - happy re-birthday! We hope there are re-birthday cakes too!

Lots of licks

Hi Guys!

I also have to go up and down the staircase every day. Carl said if we had such beautiful wooden steps, we'd go up and down them the whole day tooo!!! LOL Our steps are a painted white and yellow, so every time I go up and down them after a walk, someone rushes down and cleans them!!!!! I just had a look at Sams blog as well. Tell me, don't you guys have something called winter or autumn??? Our part of the world is already very very grey :-(

love you lots!

Stardust said...

That's very touching kids. Happy 6th re-birthday indeed to dad. I really hope all the kind people around the world are lucky like your dad.

Been away for a week, glad to see you both again. :)
