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.
