Starting again with a new liver
« on: September 26, 2016, 10:46:17 am »
I had a liver transplant in Dec 2013 Im close to three years after transplant.
I was very bad off and wanted everything to end towards the end before i received a transplant.
Its tough starting over learning what you can and cant do. Im still learning this, but after my transplant my wife seperated from me then divorced me . So besides my health and mental well being i had and have to deal with this. I am currently doing good health wise. I live in Colorado im a ski instructor at a large resort i hunt fish trap and enjoy the outdoors very much. So there is life after a transplant just take it easy and keep moving forward.
God Bless all.

Just push on man, living/working on a mountain is the best life I can imagine.
I was an snowboard instructor a while ago, and that was the best time of my life living on mountain whole winter.
Now as an IT administrator office rat, I remember that time often.
