My husband is healthy

You guys – I don’t even know where to begin. My.Husband.Is.Healthy.

Three months ago, Nick received a liver transplant. The difference is indescribable.

It was a long road that escalated suddenly when Nick started internally bleeding (although we didn’t know it at the time). He waited four long days at the top of the list while in ICU. Thankfully, he accepted an offer for an organ and made it through a very long and difficult 10 hour surgery.

I cannot say enough about our family, friends, doctors and nurses. Our family and friends made us feel more loved and supported than seems humanly possible. They were my rock so I could be Nick’s. The UCSF doctors are heroes – really, they perform the impossible and we were lucky enough to have the same surgeons from the first transplant. That alone made a huge difference.

Words will never accurately describe the appreciation and love for our donor and his family. They saved mine and grateful doesn’t even come close.

Now most days are filled with overwhelming gratitude. I highly recommend it. It’s a lovely way to spend our days.

I hope your holidays were filled with an overwhelming amount of love.

Many healthy and fit posts to come.
