Roses, Peonies and Something More Serious







I originally had something different written here but I literally just got news from my sister that the phone call my family has been waiting for was made tonight. My cousin Gina who has been living with liver failure for years finally got a match in Milwaukee, WI and is on her way there right now for a transplant. If you could keep her in your thoughts it would mean so much, if everything goes according to plan this liver will have found the best new life it could.

**Update** Surgery went well and she’s now starting the long recovery. Thanks for all your kind words, they mean a lot!

    Oh Jen. I’m sending lots of love Gina’s way. I hope it all goes well and that this new liver takes her all the places she has been dreaming of. I’m sure she has been through a lot and has been feeling pretty terrible for a while. I hope this is the start of a long and healthy life. xx

    Good luck Gina!!

    My father had a liver transplant 5 years ago and is healthier than he’s ever been. It was a scary few weeks with the major surgery and recovery. Then the first year was up and down as he was stabilized on his medications. Now he’s riding 100+ miles on his bicycle and flying around the backcountry in his little plane. He’s living a new, great life!
