Personal Update: Heart Transplant
I decided to make a second post today. This post is an update on my sister, and her journey after having her heart transplant in October 2010. This month marks the 8 month anniversary of receiving the gift of life. She is doing amazing and is able to participate in life like she wasn't able to before the transplant.
As I shared with you earlier this month, she was able to participate in the American Heart Association Heart Walk this year. It's is a 5K walk and is the second that Jen has been able to participate in since her transplant. She wasn't able to walk more than a few feet without being short of breath, or needing to sit down to rest. Those are events of the past!
