I have to remind myself why we decided to do this transplant. We truly want the best life possible for our son. Without transplant, his life would likely be filled with many more infections, ICU stays and a short life span. Now he has the chance at a full and normal life.
I saw a promotional ad for a motivational speaker today. It hit me very personally. "Instead of saying 'I have to', say 'I get to.'' (Jonnae Taylor) So many people say I have to go to work, I have to go to the grocery store, or I have to study. There are those out there that only wish they could do any of those things. Some day Aaron will say "I get to play outside" or "I get to have friends" or "I get to have a sip of my Mother's drink" or "I get to go swimming."
