I'm going to create this for my backyard. It's a party coming soon. Some people ask me how I'm doing waiting for a heart. It's hard, sad and uncomfortable. I'm waiting on someone to die. In 4 years that has never gotten easy to think about. It's both scary and exciting. It sucks.
We talked to McKenzie about it last night. She is strong. She was more concerned about doing my flash cards. She did ask "What if it doesn't work?" I told her they will work hard to make it work and they use a machine called a bypass to keep me alive. I don't know if she really gets it or if she is trying to be strong for me. She's 8. This week we bought 2 new dolls, planned a Halloween party, danced, went to Girl Scouts, played in the sand, blew bubbles and she ate a popsicles for breakfast. Every moment is special. It's why we try to do so much with them. She's only 8. I'm her mama. She is so like me.
