How Sally Got Her Groove Back

Okay, so it's not back yet. And I am still completely unsure how to get it back. Or if it is even possible to get it back. I'd say it's a work in progress.

Nothing about my life has been what I "expected" since the end of February. You may have noticed that this time period is also when I stopped writing and stopped communicating. I want to tell you, my friends, my family, and all of you who have followed my journey and willed me through my transplant, that I am sorry I have not kept you updated and not responded to your efforts at keeping/getting in touch. I have intended to write on this blog every day. I just haven't known how. I am not who I used to be but haven't finished figuring out who I am. Or who I am going to be. So I humbly ask for your patience and tolerance while I go through this process.


I am determined to write regularly, with some current news mixed in with a trip down transplant lane. I literally have so much inisde to share with you all that I don't know where and how to start. Ignore my new posts and emails if you like. I do worry that I might exhaust you if the flood gates really open. But I NEED to tell you, as I can, about where I have been and who I am getting back. I genuinely feel that I have some things to say that need to be heard. And I also genuinely feel that until I get it all out, I can't move on.

I am so nervous that I am shaking. Learning to open up again will be difficult for me. If you can, come along for the ride. And as always, welcome to Sally Land.

Hi Sally,
I am SO glad to hear you are not only hanging on for dear life, but healing as well. May the Lord lift you up on wings like eagles so you don't grow weary or faint in the midst of this battle. Know I love and pray for you. Good to see pics. I try to remember the pain has purpose, as it did with Allison. I miss and love you. Kelly (Book)

Yay!!!! You are back!!!
I have been checking this blog frequently, waiting to see how you are!
You don't know me, but your husband has taken care of me and my children many times (he is wonderful), and being a mom of the same age as you, I really felt connected to you somehow...
I am SO GLAD you are back!!! Keep us posted, and pour out your feelings knowing that there are people you don't even know that care about you and will listen to every word you have to say! We are here for you, Sally!

It's ok not to know who you are or where you are going or who you are going to be. Painful, but okay. Your blog readers have been waiting for your wit, your intelligence and the beauty of who you are whether you feel good or not, mentally or physically. I love you and have been like many others waiting for you to post something. Love, Linda Fluken
