Taming Josh’s Dragon is about Josh’s life, our transplant experience, our normal day-to-day routines, how together we dealt with his lifelong health challenges, his death and beyond. Yes, there is a “beyond”. I consciously made the choice to remain here after lengthy contemplation of and planning for the unthinkable: joining him in the Hereafter.
If you or a loved one faces a lifesaving organ transplant, you may think, “OK, after this is over, my life will return to normal”. Well, the truth of the matter is…no, it won’t. You must develop your own totally new normal. All those years ago we were told, in essence, that you are simply exchanging one health issue for another. A fair trade, indeed, considering that you gain valuable additional time with your loved one.
