My Long-Term Angel Cove Sabbatical

As of this posting, I will be on long-term sabbatical from the Angel Cove Transplant Blog.

Over the last year, I’ve flip-flopped back and forth on whether or not to keep this blog up and running. It’s one thing to write from the heart but an entirely different thing to write because you feel like you have to given someone something to read.

I don’t want to just fill these virtual pages with words to suit an ego or feel like I may be helping others. In all honesty, if I’m not writing from the heart then I’m not helping anyone – least of all my family and me.

On November 11, 2011, my husband will celebrate 7 blessed years with his “hand-me-down” lungs. It will be on that day that we celebrate the beauty that is life after an organ donor and his family gave my wonderful husband a second chance at his.

Life should be celebrated and it is time for us to put aside Angel Cove and work on build a life that can fill books instead of electronic pages.

My words will continue to live on through this blog as an archive and Angel Cove on Facebook and Twitter – those too as archives. The Angel Cove Transplant Awareness Shop will still continue to be open for business – gifts and t-shirts to help raise organ donation awareness – as well as 10% donated to the UW-Madison Hospitals transplant fund. So, please feel free to head over to my shop and continue to spread awareness.

So, I bid you a fond farewell – for now.

If, of course, you feel the need to follow me on a personal level, feel free to subscribe to my Facebook personal page, as I will never be totally gone.

Irish smiles and may your life be blessed with love, laughter, health and happiness.

After her husband received a double-lung (bilateral) transplant in 2004, Shannon founded the Angel Cove Organ Donation Awareness Shop, which provides awareness t-shirts and gifts products for transplant recipients, living organ donors and donor families - giving 100% of the profits to help heart and lung transplant recipients with medical costs. Shannon lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with her wonderful husband and two chocolate Labrador Retrievers.
