Great news: Jihan's transplant was successful!

Remember my friend Jihan who needed the heart transplant? Just got an email from her and she received her new heart and has had a speedy recovery and is home! In her own words:

It has been an AMAZING and whirlwind experience! God is an awesome god and She gets all the glory. I feel so fucking good! The nurses and doctors were just blown away by my speedy recovery.

And I want to thank you again for reaching out to your readers on my behalf. We still have some hefty financial hurdles to overcome, but right now, I just don't give a damn! LOL! I'm alive!!!

Thanks everybody who sent a little gift to help out. Jihan told me she received gifts from all over the country, from people she didn't know and she chalked that up, partly, to this blog community--so thanks! Y'all rock!!!
