Share whatever information you want us to know about you

I went through a terrible pulmonary failure with a long five month hospitalization, coma, life support, cardiac arrest, and total muscle loss. It was the fight of my life. I waited over two years for my wonderful match. I will always fight for what is precious, whether it be my family or myself ,

My family above all, especially those grands, walking with and taking care of my two dogs, crewel needlework, historical fiction, book club. I also head up the Architectural Committee of the community where I live.
