3 Month Anniversary

It is hard to believe that about this time 8:45am, three months ago today, I was staring at the ceiling of the OR at OSU. Just 15 minuets earlier I was finding peace laying in pre op. I was praying that Andi Olasin Gilliland was having a successful surgery. I was praying for peace for my wife and family. I was thanking God for the gift I was about to receive. And I was hoping that I would take this gift and use it correctly. I found an inner peace that I had never experienced before. To take a breath and realize that your life is going to be, literally, in someone else’s hands, and have confidence in them. To say this journey has been wild is an understatement. It seems like yesterday and forever ago at the same time. My prayer is that everyone seeking a transplant of any kind, have this gift I have. Every time hear of the struggle someone is having to find an organ it pulls at me. I will do the best I can to spread the word and educate. Please be an organ, eye, and tissue donor. Please consider living donation. #lifelineofohio
