It still amazes me that my heart and lungs used to belong to someone else.  Because everything happened so quickly I’ve read more about what I went through after the fact.  I find myself every now and again looking up information on heart/lung transplants online when the mood strikes.

Here are some interesting links that I found tonight through a heart-lung transplant support group online and Google:
