Every 10 minutes another name is added to the national organ transplant waiting list, according to Donate Life america. In Biddy McGee "God Help Us!", author Bridget Shaffer shares her journey through the strenuous transplant process. The entries - sometimes humorous, sometimes sad - are Shaffer's personal take on life, healing and transformation.
Since childhood, Shaffer suffered breathing complications, from asthma to tuberculosis. She was hospitalized five times in 2005. The time had come for her to make a heart wrenching decision. Shaffer decided to have a double lung transplant.
In Biddy McGee "God Help Us!", Shaffer relives the extensive qualifying process, including a grueling list of scans, x-rays and tests. Once she is approved for the transplant wait list, she waits in anguish. She dedicates herself to a positive, though realistic outlook. Knowing she might not survive the wait, or the surgery, she buys future Christmas presents and writes emotion-filled good-bye letters to her loved ones. With grace and courage, she navigates the delicate balance of living life and accepting death.
Biddy Mcgee "God Help Us!" is a must read for anyone who has lived through life's valleys.
Shaffer dedicates her book "to all the people who unselfishly made the decision to donate their organs so someone else can go on living."
