I cannot express in words how much Lauren and I would like to thank everyone for all the love and support. All the cards that we have been receiving, I have been placing them on the wall so we will always be reminded we are not here alone.
The past couple of weeks has been very hard on our family. My father-in-law, Gibby Robitaille, has left this earth on February 1, 2018. It was very unexpected, complication after having hip surgery. He may not be with us here in person, but Gibby will always be with us in our hearts. My father-in-law was a very special type of man. He lived his life the way he wanted and never tried to be anyone but himself. I will always remember that in my life, just be yourself. Lauren was very upset she could not come home to be with the family, (she tried to get a day pass) but didn't work out.
Heaven has gained another angel to look over us, his name is Gibby.
Life is such a precious gift, never take it for granted. Our family has learned that lesson many times. It takes a lot of effort to be mean and hurtful, and no effort to be kind. It's as easy as a smile or a hello.
Also a big "THANK YOU" to everyone who has purchased one of our heart and kidney pin. Lauren is blown away with the response. Organizing and shipping the pins is keeping Lauren busy and excited. She is running a business right out of her hospital bed. Love It. I just placed another order and when they come in we will let everyone know.
On one last note, when I went home this past weekend, I was asked "what is one of your days like living in the hospital"? It was hard to answer, things could be like ground hog day or it could change in a second. So far we are basically living in the ground hog statues To learn more of what it is like living in the hospital waiting for a heart transplant, now a heart and kidney transplant, you could read my book
