Anything is possible
heart transplant, inspirational story, organ transplant
I would like to thank everyone that came out Friday night to the Waterfront Tavern, to support and welcome home my daughter Lauren Meizo. The love was overwhelming!! I truly hope everyone had a wonderful time. This event was in the planning stages since March, when Lauren was on the waiting list for a new heart and kidney transplant. We were not even sure if we where going to be able to attend, but by the grace of God we were there.
"THANK YOU SO MUCH TO ALL WE LOVE YOU ALL"

Diary of a Heart Transplant
Thank you so much, I really appreciate the beautiful post
5.0 out of 5 starsI love books and wanted a copy to take with me ...
Wow! I don't know where to start. I got the news from my cardiologist that I needed to meet with his "Heart Team" because my heart is failing and has changed a lot in the past few years. I knew my symptoms weren't normal but I really wanted to hear I was out of shape. Not that my heart was failing. Within a few hours of my diagnosis I wanted more information but I wanted to hear it from a patient. Someone with true life experience was what I was searching for. I did a search online and found Lynne and Lauren's book. I bought the Kindle version and started reading that night. Then I just had to have the paperback. I'm old fashioned, I love books and wanted a copy to take with me to the hospital in the future because I could feel the strength and hope in the text after the first few pages.
I have 5 kids at home and read only when they were in bed so I took my time but putting it down was difficult. I wanted to know what the next journal writing was going to say! As a mom and a mom of a son with a heart condition and an ICD and Pacemaker, I connected with Lynne instantly. Her strength, raw emotion and honesty throughout the book was amazing. As a woman with a heart condition, ICD/Pacemaker and now looking at a heart transplant, I connect with Lauren, too. Her struggles outweigh mine x10 but her strength, honesty and determination give me hope. This book is real! It's emotional. It shows that life sucks and you have to take each day as it comes. You have to live in the moments and enjoy every good thing. I will take this book with me. I plan on highlighting (in my good ol' paperback) each of the triumphs in Lauren's journey and her smiles. I am beyond encouraged by this book!
I recommend this book to anyone that needs encouragement to fight and stay strong through ANY life struggle. Heart condition or not, this is a beautifully written story of real life and I am so thankful I found it. Now I am getting a copy for my mom. :)
Thank you again, this book has help so many people that are in the transplant stage and their families understand what the process entails. Please help me get the word out to help many, many more people living on the transplant list.
