Santa?! Mrs. Claus?! Chad?!

Wow, what a surprise!!
Santa, Mrs. Claus and Chad came for a visit today! We must have been good this year! I know we have been very blessed to have such great friends and family to help us get through this craziness! And of course blessed to have gotten a selfless gift from someone we don't even know!

Santa came with a HUGE Christmas stocking filled with gifts for the ENTIRE family. Inside the piggy bank that Jim got was a note. It read:
"This 'Santa Claus' document entitles Jim Fahr to one round ticket to see the 2011 Yankees Spring Training, including a ticket to the game & a baseball park meal! Merry Christmas!!!!'"

Great friends!

The cat was MIA so I opened her gifts for her. She's got a rough life...

Our Christmas card.
The picture on the left was taken when we were in the process of getting listed at Penn (with O2) and the one on the right is a post-transplant picture (no O2)! Lynn, you're one crafty woman!

Jim is feeling MUCH better today compared to yesterday. His stomach was good until he had some soup for dinner. The same thing happened to him the last time he had soup. It just didn't sit right with him. I think it may be the heat bothering his belly. He is now at 135 lbs.

"Today was a good day...string a few of these together and I'll be feeling pretty good about myself."

Lots of love sent to our donor and our donor's family!
