First Swim

Lost count of days and that is a good thing.

Life after transplant. LIFE.

Swimming. Acting like a normal 10 year old, almost 11! But strong and wise from challenging experiences. She lives each day doing the things she enjoys and she seems truly thankful for life. With blood draws only once a month, life feels normal for the first time in years. She is such an amazing person. I am so grateful for Naomi. She was excited to be able to swim at a birthday party this week. We have gone to friends’ for game night, birthday parties and she was allowed to go to Costco and Walmart shopping with Lauryn and me. It is the little things.



Last night, on Independence Day, Naomi flushed her catheter for the last time. She is all ready for it to be taken out. Here she is waiting for her surgery team. She has an IV for the first time in 16 months.
