Happy Thoughts

So I thought I'd take sec today to say thanks - because it just seems so appropriate to be happy and grateful right now. In other worse....

Thank you donor for the gift.
Dr. Sonett for the skill (and his wholeER team!).
Thanks readers for listening.
To mom, dad, Joan, and Erin for giving me everything they have over and over and over again, and for the lesson in true love.
To Ben and Luke and Jules and Molly and Kerith and Erin and Gabby and all my many friends here, there, and everywhere - for countless things.
To Kelley and Jerry and Jen and Tom and Kristy and Gina and Tina and the whole Columbia crew for my sanity and for making this seem doable.
To Dr. DiMango and Victoria for laughing and always being there even when I was annoying and whiney and scared.
To Dr. Lederer, Dr. Shaw, Dr. Wilt, and Dr. Arcasoy for making me trust this could happen.
To Dr. Tsiouris for trying every combo known to man in an attempt to keep me healthy.
To cf2 and my online family for the support and the rants and mostly for letting me be crazy.
To everyone for caring enough to make me believe.
To my nurses - seriously, you all amaze me.
To God. To God. To God.

  1. Thanks to you for giving me hope I can make it through the long,arduous, and sometimes scary process.

  2. Thank you for inspiring me: to work harder, to live fuller, to laugh like I mean it, to be more thankful.
    Thank you for teaching me that a single pair of gold ballet flats can go with your entire wardrobe.
