An Email From my Donor!

Dear Reader,

Exciting things keep happening in my life, I will tell you right about it.

I got an email from my donor yesterday! It had pictures in it too. This is him, and his girlfriend.
See how happy he is? See that is just like me. I put this photo so my English Grandmother, Aunty Alien, and my English Aunty could check out my donor's girlfriend. Mom thought that she looked English. Personally, I don't know, I can never tell these things very well, but I thought my English relatives might like that she at least looks it.

This is my donor all by himself.
They say that donors and recipients often look very much a like. Sometimes even like an older, opposite sex version of themselves. I hope you are capable of recognizing the resemblance we share.

My donor is a real active person. He likes to windsurf and mountain bike and recently took up Taiko drums. It is some kind of Japanese drum. If you saw one you would probably say, "Oh! I've seen that before!"

I am his only biological child, and so far he seems pleased with me. I'm very happy about that.

He wrote me another email today too, but it was a bit shorter. He said he had to "stand up very early tomorrow morning", so he needed his sleep. I wrote him back an email already even though I too have to stand up very early tomorrow.

I have to leave at 7am to go to All Children's. I have to get IVIG at clinic, I have a Pulmonary test, and I'm going to help with the family centered rounds project that the Family Advisory Council is working on. It is going to be a very good day, but even if it isn't that is okay because my donor already made my week.
But speaking of my week, I'm just going to give you a quick splash of my plans. I already told you the plan for tomorrow, Wednesday I'm hoping to do a mountainous amount of homework, though I have to be careful not to inundate myself with it because I never get any done when that happens, Thursday I'm puppy-sitting for my friends' new 10 week old Shitzu (I would code-name the dog, but I try to keep a mostly G rated blog), and Friday I go to Orlando to film the commercial for Florida Virtual School (FLVS).

I hope you all have as wonderful a week as I am having or better.
Love, Miss E.

PS Please don't take this the wrong way, but I know at least one of my Readers may be having a hard week. Just please know, it doesn't have to be as awful as it has the potential to be, it can be wonderful like mine if you make it so. You decide if your life is going to be great or not.
