Father’s Day

Today is Father’s Day. I really miss my Father. He was so strong and kind. He was definitely the first person I called when I needed advice or help. He was always there for me. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before but when my father was sick and he was told that there were no more treatment options for him. We put him on comfort measures at his request. I remember the date it was May 20th, 2017. I was on the heart transplant list and I received the call that they had a heart for me on May 20, 2023. Is this a coincidence or a connection? Happy Father’s Day Dad! I love you❤️

We had a family fun week Monday and Tuesday we visited with my Father’s side of the family (the Curleys) I was able to see uncles and cousins that don’t live in this state. It was a wonderful time seeing my dad’s brothers and sisters!

We had a great weekend. We attended Ellie’s graduation on Friday. I’m so proud of her. She’s in the Honors Society and won the President’s Award for her exceptional grades throughout Middle School. She works so hard at everything she does. We headed to the camper after the graduation. It was quiet at the campground but our friends were all camping. We had a lots of laughs and fun. Today David’s daughters and granddaughters came for the afternoon. They helped their father make chicken finger and chicken fried rice. It was delicious! We all played a few games and enjoyed our family time together.

Spending time with friends and family has caused me to think of my donor more. I worry about the donors family. Are there people missing my donor today. Maybe I could help fill a void even a little. I have decided that I am going to write a letter to his/her family. I’m sure it will take me some time because I want it to be thoughtful, sensitive and compassionate. I know that they do not have to respond but art of me hopes that they do.

Tomorrow we are going to Boston for an appointment with a Rheumatologist because of my feet pain. I really hope that they have something to offer We will have to see. Bilateral foot and ankle pain that has been effecting me since December and no one really knows what to do- I’m always a mystery.

I’m trying to stay positive and hopeful for answers!!
