WONDERFUL NEWS

WONDERFUL NEWS.
 
 
I AM NOW ON THE "TRANSPLANT ACTIVE LIST."
 
 
I have been so worried about not being placed on the list over the past 6 weeks.
This is because of the suspicion that I had a "turbulent flow"
descending in the left aorta in the pulmonary area, by "some" of the doctors.
That would have made my chances of being placed on the list, virtually nil.
You can imagine just how happy I was to learn this.
 
It happened thus.  
 
 
Our friend Kate had messaged me , just asking me how I was feeling.  I replied I was ok  
but was not expecting to hear anything about the "reassessment" that happened yesterday.
For  2/3 weeks. 
 
LO and behold, no sooner had I replied to Kate's message, the phone rang !!!
A lady with a soft gentle voice spoke to me these words.
" Kenneth, they have placed you on the active list"
I was speechless for a moment, then my spirits were tossed Olympus high.
I am now in the race proper. A race I intend to win, a race of which
the first prize is a life extension.  A prize worth winning, me thinks.
(I do have a quality of life)
 
 
I shall never forget this day or the timing of the phone call.
 
 
The transplant coordinator who phoned told me, I shall hear from her again soon.
to arrange a meeting to discuss the details of the surgeons decision.
 
A great weight has been lifted from my shoulder this day.
 
It is not very often I use expletives in my posts. But today is different.
so if I may just shout out loud   " I am  f*****g   "buzzing"   lol.
sorry about that, but I just could not resist it.
I am just soooo  happy.
 
RE; my picture " my daughter in the water"   I created it yesterday when I was thinking about the doctors, with their heads together. Wondering just WHAT conclusions they had come to and what decision they had made.  All day yesterday it seemed like I was in a dream world.  Today I am tingling with excitement .   Who knows what I shall create next.  I don't know, I must wait and see what pops into my head.  
Deep peace of mind time, for me now.
 
Kenny
 
 
PS. Sarah, I wish you the best of luck with "your MRI"
"DONT STOP BELIEVING"
I haven't.
 
 
 
PPS.
 
February second is the exact halfway point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. It is the winter midpoint or cross-quarter day. The duskiest, coldest season is now officially half over!
A good day to learn that I am on the list.
 
Not long now and things in the garden shall begin to stir

  5. Vee.When we are content, it is "then" we feel no jealousy. I have st rived to achieve this state during my evolution and I have succeeded.Yes Vee, it is just one of my doodles.

  6. Did you draw this Kenny? It reminds me of one of my exes! lol (just kidding!) I don’t understand jealousy. Instead of feeling a pointless emotion towards someone because they have something you want etc, just go out and get it yourself! Your energy is better spent in a positive way, and usually more productive! Negative emotions are usually better deflected back towards the sender, by way of a large frying pan! (joke!) Stay lucky kiddo!

  7. Dear Kenny,I was using an analogy to express how to avoid the damage that family memebers can inflict through jealousy. Thought of you today as I headed into collage. Hope your day has been full of the things you enjoy most. x

  8. Vee.I am sure some, if not all people reading your comment, can relate to it in some way or another. I know I can.Never allow a fool to kiss you and never be fooled by a kiss ! As they say in the Dordogne :)Deep peace to you, Dos-teh-seh… lol

  9. ‘Drama of pure jealousy’ like this a lot! I used to have a friend who was like this and so was her husband. I had to end the friendship because their dramas became too much to bear eventually. Now I’m pleased to say they have emigrated to the States which makes me happy thinking of all the miles we have now have inbetween us. I feel sorry for America though! As for families, spending an afternoon with mine is like being in a really bad episode of Dallas! More drama than a drag queen’s outfit! I am currently the ‘Black Sheep’ in my family (I’m giving someone else a break who has held this title for the past 36 years or so), due to the fact that I won’t be pushed about and told what to do or get mixed up in the bitching and s*it stirrin! I chose to keep command of my own cauldron, thank-you-very-much! So the current toll of people within my family not speaking to me is 8 so far. Do I care? I couldn’t give a monkey’s toss! Life if far too short and I’m way to busy enjoying myself to worry about this type of juvenile behaviour. As for the saying ‘blood is thicker than water’ , I haven’t believed in it for the past 36 years and can’t see that I ever will! As we say in the Witches Rede’ ; ~ ‘With a fool no season spend, nor be counted as his friend!’ . Blessings Cochise. xx (Slobbers for Cherno xx )

  10. Vee. you are spot on there, life would be so boring. I don’t give anyone a reason to hate me, they just create their own little drama of pure jealousy !!! take care my wonderful Witch.Suki. Yes wonderful news indeed, and wonderful to see you here. Nick. Excellent news about your friend. But to start a new job as well is fantastic. He must be a very relieved man. As for me feeling like "Atlas", you are spot on, but i wished i looked like him instead of feeling like him. lol.My positivity and strength I derive from within, and my enthusiasm I get from reading the wonderful comments that people so kindly leave. Yes, it won’t be easy Nick. But I am up for it 100%Timid one. it is the word "spreading" that delights me :)Nat. I was not referring to "your" family in particular. RE: jealousy. read my answer to Vee’s comment !Sarah. It gave me a warm feeling, when I read this.

  15. Kenny, within my nuclear family not one do I count as an enemy, not even if they transgress against me. They are my blood. If I felt this way because of the the things they do or say and the blood within me would rot my core. That would be my biggest enemy. What is the saying about the people that don’t care don’t matter? As for jealousy it damages the instigator. The humble worm is phenomenonal creature. Pro-active in the support of the eco-system. Remember this when you class yourself as such. Peace and Love. ;o) xx
