  1. You’re not complaining….this IS overwhelming..especially when you are a child. I think all of you have been amazingly brave and heroic, As Arielle just posted, things will become more routine, you are still transitioning from a medical emergency to what is now a chronic illness… I love you

  2. It doesnt sound like complaining at all, to me it sounded like you had to say it out loud to make yourself “believe” it. (im not sure if believe is the right word) And so what if you were complaining….I think in the last year, with all the things that have occured, you have a right to complain.
    Anas picture with the cat is awesome. We have no pets right now but as a kid we went back and forth between cats and dogs. There was a time we had at least 5 cats and we all had our favorites. Take care and be happy. HUGS to you and your family.

  3. I am a friend of Amy’s and have been following your saga. I just wanted to weigh in today because my husband had heart transplant surgery at Colombia 8 years ago and every day seems like a miracle for me. Life just gets more and more normal, which is thrilling in its own mundane way. Your daughter takes many of the same drugs my hubby does. He will never be able to stop taking anti-rejection meds and we have to go to hospital several times a year, sometimes where they go in through a vein a snip a little piece of his heart for a biopsy to check for rejection. I hope things will settle into a routine for you as they have for us. I am just thankful for each day.

  4. Sending love to you, Jackie! – stay cool these days. – We TOTALLY understand cat love in this family. I’ve never loved cats so much as I do as a mom – seeing the ways my boys are attached. Love that pic of Ana with her cat.
