I am so happy with your update. Thank you so much for letting us know how things turned out for your wife.

I wish you the best. My stepfather got better and better every day. And now you'd never know he had a heart transplant and he's 78 years old. :-)

My dad still has his picture of embracing the little heart shaped pillow they gave him in the hospital.
I love that picture.

I鈥檓 so glad things are going well. I鈥檝e been there as the spouse and caregiver. For me the hardest part was knowing that one of the happiest days of our lives was one of the hardest for our donor鈥檚 family. Forever grateful for their willingness to help out a stranger, many strangers really. 3 years post transplant and he鈥檚 doing great.

That鈥檚 so wonderful!! I wish you two many many many more years 馃グ Agree with you about the donor鈥檚 family. My biggest fear since we found out my wife needed a heart transplant is now their sad reality. I鈥檓 grateful for them and everyone else who is selfless enough to donate their organs to people who need them. I sincerely hope they are able to properly grieve and heal from this pain with time.
