On July 21, 2014, life as I knew it changed when my husband of 36 years died. Michael had lived for many years with liver disease. In his last months his health deteriorated as the disease and the treatments both took their toll on his body. On June 1, 2014, Michael received a liver transplant which we thought would restore him to good health and give him many more years, but it didn’t turn out like we’d hoped.
Now life looks different and I will be trying to find my way without his presence and his partnership. If you decide to come along with me through this blog, I hope you will find some sort of encouragement and that I can let you in on how Michael lived his life, influenced others around him and how I’ll somehow find where I go from here. This is my first attempt at a blog, so I’m setting only two goals: first, to post at least three times a week; second, to be transparent (though I warn you – transparent ain’t always pretty).
