Prior to my transplant, I taught Grade 2/3 students for 30 years. I was diagnosed in 1997 and was told to stop teaching. It took a few months before I was told that my liver wasn’t functioning and my spleen was trying to do these functions. I slept a lot. Now I am able to do aquafit, three-mile walks daily, ride my bike and mow the three-acre lawn. On “Good Friday”, I will direct the play called “I stand in Awe of You, Lord”. That is how I felt about my transplant. It was awesome. Thanks to my donor, the staff and doctors and my praying church for the miracle of my life.
