J's Heart

I found this pretty Valentine in my mailbox today. It is from my friend "J." J is waiting on her second heart transplant, her third heart. We are the same age. Her second heart served her well for over 25 years. It is tired now. She needs a new one.

Here is what I recently read in the newspaper: "Second heart transplants are relatively rare. In 2006, the most recent year for which data is available, only 3.7 percent of heart transplants, 82, were repeat transplants."

Please pray for J. She has been on the list for over a year. Waiting is stressful.

  4. As the daughter of a live kidney donor and the cousin of a kidney recipient organ donation is close to my heart. My prayers are for J tonight. She must have a heart(s!) of gold.

  5. She's in my thoughts and prayers... as you may know, my Dash has had a couple of heart surgeries (not transplants) and one of my oldest friends' daughter got one at the age of 13.

    It's a miraculous thing. I hope she gets another miracle real soon!<3
