From Christopher… This made me feel good about the support I have received from all my friends and relatives.  I always wanted to be a writer. The total number of words that I wrote for this block is a little over 70k. That equals a good-sized novel. Now I did this blog for several reasons. Of course the most important reason was to get my story out which not only helped me deal with all of this but may have given someone with a family member going through a transplant a little insight into what it is we go through.

Anyway, I really appreciate the support you have all given to me.

Get ready for a new post either later this afternoon or evening.

Once again, I could not have done this without the support of all of my readers. Thank you for helping me deal with what we all know is a life-changing event.
