Some months ago I shared the story of AlJ and his long struggle with heart disease. There is little doubt that without a heart transplant … well, let’s just say it didn’t look good.
He got his transplant and has been been doing very well. Anything I can say pales in comparison to the following story. In short, there are always two sides to a transplant story. One is upbeat and encouraging. The other story is one of tragedy and nightmare followed by tough decisions.
Sometimes, those timelines meet, like they did recently with AlJ & the donor family. I’ve long delayed making an update about AlJ. I saved the best for last. Please click and read this story.
