Hi everyone this is Abby. First off i want to thank everyone for the love and support you are all giving me. Thanks especially to my school that game me my ipad, I will use it a ton! I have been feeling really good today! In fact, I have been being really goofy! Today Paul Cardall came to visit me. He was super nice. He talked about when he was going through his transplant, and it made me feel very optimstic about everything. He gave me a signed CD and book, and I can't wait to start reading and listening! This is what he signed, "abby, miracles happen." This is such a true statement. He also did a private concert for me with the donated hospital piano. This was awesome. I wish I could play like him! It made my family and I very calm and peaceful. He was a really nice guy, and a good role model for everyone. One thing that I remember is he looked directly into my eyes and said, "you will get through this." I know this is true, and I know I am strong, and I will get through this. He said to always stay positive and have a good attitude. He made me feel like I can push through this and be strong. It was a good experience. I am thankful that I got the opportunity to meet him.
Thanks again to everyone that is getting me through these hard times. The cards and letters help me so much. I love reading them, and when i'm feeling down i pull them out and they lift my spirits again. Thanks everyone :)
