I had the honor of guest posting for Noah at A Transplanted Life today.  The following is the first few paragraphs of my story. To read it in completion, hop on over to A Transplanted Life .

From the Outside Looking In

I remember the day Carter started kindergarten. The eldest and most timid of my children, I can say with certainty his first day of school would still rank somewhere in the top 5 if he kept a Terrible-Horrible-No Good-Very Bad-Day list.

That was a long day followed by a long difficult year of adjustment. But he got through it.

I remember the day Owen realized he didn’t have super powers. It was a blow to his self-confidence when his dad broke the news that it was a remote control turning on the ceiling fan; not the super-spin motion created by Owen’s alter ego, Flash.

You can imagine his disappointment. But he got over it. . .

To read the rest of the the story head on over to A Transplanted Life. While you are there, take the time to read some of Noah’s posts where you will get a glimpse into his liver transplant experience and learn a lot about organ transplantation.
