| I was dying but suddenly had a second chance at living.
| I had to have a complete liver transplant.
| They had to match blood type and meet all sorts of things I don't know about.
| I waited with a beeper for a year and 10 months to get that gift.
| We need to appreciate how precious life is.
| This is the kind of situation that can tear people apart. It tears at the fabric of your soul and can certainly tear at your marriage and ours has gotten only stronger.
