This week is Jason Birthday week, but his actual birthday in February 3rd. I have so many exciting things planned for him! I asked many LVAD friends to send him birthday wishes to my email. I am planning to put them all in envelopes with the people names on the outside—he will LOVE this!! Do you want to send Jason birthday wishes? Send them to: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will make sure he gets them on his special day! Jason doesn’t always read the blog unless I tell him I made a new post—so I’m not worried at all that he’ll see this. Thank goodness I only have a few more days left. I’ll also be posting pictures of the party ( he doesn’t know he’s having) And also pictures of all the letters that came in. We already have letters from many LVADers and even his LVAD team at MCV ( they are so awesome!)
Every birthday with Jason is awesome, but this one is so special to me—he deserves it ten times over!He has had a hard year, but continues to stay positive and sometimes that can be tough. As of now, he is still on the Transplant list waiting for his gift—and we know it will come at the perfect time. In 2009 ,they told him he wouldn’t be here in five years. By our first year anniversary, Jason was getting worse.
I took him to the doctor that morning and he stayed there for a few weeks. It was at that time he was told him he had to stop working…again. I asked his doctor when Jason was getting discharged would Jason still be with me when I was 50 or 60 —he shook his head no. That’s when I told Jason to say goodbye to that doctor-- because he wasn’t the one for us. Right then and there is when my fight for Jason began. From there we went to MCV and 4 months later Jason had his LVAD implanted. Thank goodness for determination!!
Unfortunately, this year was have lost many LVAD warriors and each one always effects me deeply.I do have to say however, that many of our friends have been blessed with the gift of life—those
Days for me are always so happy. I know God is planning to send Jason the perfect heart so I can’t be sad that he hasn’t gotten his yet. So, every day is a blessing that Jason is still here with us, and believe me, I thank God everyday for him— and to show love to my sweetheart—he’s going to have the best birthday ever this year…so stay tuned!!
