Babies don't just die...

Twenty-four years ago right now (midday, March 13th, 2019) our baby boy was listed for a heart transplant, which included a difficult discussion about whether Trenton would live long enough to get a heart, and would another baby die in time.  It was a time of massive guilt. Read about the discussion here:

and a future blog post will discuss the transplant guilt.  It will be shared on

E-mail me when people leave their comments –

David Cary is the father of a two-time heart transplant, Trenton.

  • Thank you for sharing your experience! Having received two Txs, thirteen years apart, "Why me" is a lament I may never get answered when so many are waiting for their first. I pray Trenton stays well.

    • Thank you for your comments and prayers. I'm working on a blog post now for to more fully describe our transplant guilt. This weekend, we celebrated the anniversary of his first TX.
