Transplant Anniversary Party

Saturday we had a gathering for all of our family and friends that supported both Jim and I through this crazy transplant journey. Here are some pictures:

My yummy chocolate martini!

Team Sheldon, Sheldon and The Rock

Chicken satay...or as some people like to call it "chicken on a stick" ;)

A girl I used to work with made the cake! I'm so happy with the way it turned out and it tasted amazing! Here's her web site in case you're interested. The lungs are cake and the trachea was formed with rice krispie treats! Purple ribbon for CF and green ribbon for Organ Donation Awareness. If you haven't followed the blog from the beginning, the reason for "Pristine" being on the cake can be explained here, here, here, here and here. Basically, it's the word that we have been using to describe Jim's lungs since he had his first bronch.

Our support crew! You have no clue how much we cherish all of you

Team Sheldon - Holly, Shannon, Michelle and Barb. You guys are THE best!

The menu with a special saying on it from J

Yet again, I thank Jim's donor and his family for giving us the chance to enjoy a special evening with wonderful family and friends.

Oh, this blog set up stinks. The comments aren't matching the pictures. Must make time to figure this out...


  1. Happy anniversary to Jim! It's hard to believe it's already been a year. I'm glad you had a mini-vacation and a party to celebrate. The cake looks awesome too!

    All the best,
