Feeling Normal
Hello everyone! I would like to wish everyone a Happy and Safe Holiday!!
I have taken a back seat for the last couple of months, forcing Eric to update the blog. Hehe, it worked. Eric is doing fine and beginning to feel his energetic, stubborn self!! It has been nice not seeing him do the Chemo and getting back to normal.
Eric hasn't had Chemo for almost a month now. We insisted on this, so he could shake the ill feeling he had not to mention the pneumonia he came down with in the beginning on November. He will be starting the Chemo back up this week, but at a lower dose. Here we go again...well no maybe not. I have my fingers crossed..shhh and my toes.
It's funny I talk to so many people about our quest to survive and change our current US transplant system. Hearing people say they admire Eric an I, for what we did. Well let me point something out. We did nothing different than any other person would do, to live. The only thing that makes us stand out, is that we are willing to talk about our experience. Speak out loud about the unjust process there is regarding the transplant lists. Wanting people to know that the way things are done here in the states, needs to change.
The real story is not us.
The real story is WHY!!
