We are Survivors- The Perfect Storm February 2, 2014

We have weathered about the most PERFECT STORM any couple can ever imagine, and came out the Other Side intact and without killing each other. We have weathered the ugliness of divorce, separation from family, the death of my parents, and only had each other for long time. We became even more DETERMINED to make this life the best it could be. We built our business from the ground up, on little more than a wing and a lot of Prayers, and we made it work.
We moved to a beautiful house in the woods, isolated from mass transit and light pollution,  so dark at night,  the stars literally rain down on us as we lay on the deck out back. We wished on shooting stars, and we stayed up half the night in 2006 to watch my first Aurora Borealis. It was like getting religion, learning to play a REAL guitar and playing your first CULT song with any amount of recognition, it was MAGIC!
But nothing prepared us for what lay ahead….
We have survived Cirrhosis Of The Liver, Hepatic encephalopathy, aka H.E., 4 surgeries and over 25 hospital admissions between 2012-2013, before and after liver transplant. WOW, what a year!
I love you Mike Schwab, and if you ever forget that, or if H.E. holds your mind hostage again, I will still be here to remind you of that. I know you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, but you are on the sunny side of Life now, keep on truckin’ and don’t look back.  I would do it all again, because I know now, YES I CAN.
