Welcome to My second Chance?
A blog for and about people who are undergoing or have undergone an organ transplant. What I noticed when I was waiting for my Liver Transplant was that there are not many support groups dealing with organ transplant. There is a good one at the American Liver Foundation, and one good one on Facebook. There was very little for caregivers of people who were pre-transplant or post-transplant. What I found was sites for caregivers dealing with autism, alzheimers, dementia. These are also diseases where people have a very hard time dealing with the situation. Unfortunately the problems faced are different than going through a transplant.
I started this blog a few months after my transplant. Recovery from surgery was harder than I thought it would be and I had to take a break. I am much much better now. I have emerged on the other side of the tunnel and I am back online and here to help.
This site is an infant and will grow over time. I know people have strong opinions, especially about our own life and death. Let’s please not be mean, snarky, demeaning, etc. to others. If people want to have a forum to discuss the ACA or other topics, it will be put into place. Please, what happens on this site, stays on this site. And stay on topic.
