The life and times of a liver transplant family.
I’m the mom to Natalie.
Natalie had a liver transplant in 2005, receiving a portion of my liver. She was born with Biliary Atresia.
I gave Natalie a part of my liver, she gave me her heart.
We are good at sharing.
This website is a collection of medical updates and letters to my daughter.
This is her story…

    Mom, I saw her!

    Her reaction was like seeing a celebrity.

    Mom I saw her*!

    Well, did you say hi?

    No.

    Why not?

    Because I wasn’t sure if it was her. It’s been so long since we have seen each other. But I think it was her. She is really tall. I wonder if I will be that tall…

    Did she say hi to you?

    No. I don’t think she remembers me anymore. (Said with wishful hope and a little sadness)

    Next time, say “Hi.” OK? You are family. And I am sure that she would have said, “Hi,” right back to you.

    OK, next time I see her, I will. I will say, "Hi." We are family.



    It makes me think of a really really sad song…

    "Say Something"

    Say something, I'm giving up on you
    I'll be the one, if you want me to
    Anywhere I would've followed you
    Say something, I'm giving up on you

    And I am feeling so small
    It was over my head
    I know nothing at all

    And I will stumble and fall
    I'm still learning to love
    Just starting to crawl

    Say something, I'm giving up on you
    I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
    Anywhere I would've followed you
    Say something, I'm giving up on you

    And I will swallow my pride
    You're the one that I love
    And I'm saying goodbye

    Say something, I'm giving up on you
    And I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
    And anywhere I would've followed you (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
    Say something, I'm giving up on you

    Say something, I'm giving up on you
    Say something...
