Missing you all

I have been thinking about the blog a lot lately.  Why I stopped posting.  Why I haven't written.  What direction should the blog take now that I have had my transplant.

I feel totally guilty to my readers that I didn't take you through the transplant experience with me when it was happening.  I mean, after all, isn't that what we were ALL waiting for?????  Then I go and leave you hanging.  In reality of course I was fighting for my life and hanging on by a thread and for quite a while that was all I could concentrate on...  But then of course I *should have* picked it up and filled in the blanks and I think that is where I got stumped...  Being a bit of a perfectionist I couldn't figure out if I should go back to the day of transplant or if I should just pick it up in real time or a combo of both and HOW to do that?

So, I did nothing.  As you can plainly see.

I have been encouraged by many people who are still coming and thanking me for my blog, you know who you are and THANK YOU, also people I help face to face here in So Cal.  Some that have passed away.  Their spouses have told me that if their loved one who was now gone could say anything to me it would be to keep on sharing and here I am.

I don't know where I am going to take the blog but I promise you this.  I am going to keep it going.  It will stay Liver, Transplant, Cirrhosis, Organ Donation related. 

It will have bits and pieces of Nancy thrown in and also other people going through some of the same challenges that we all do who go through this scary, terrifying, painful, confusing, soul searching, often magical journey  of living with a life threatening, decompensating liver disease and the miracle of transplant.

So there you go!
