I spent eight months in the hospital finally getting a heart and kidney transplant in Jan. of 2020. The first 45-60 days I was in and out of comas and getting so many shocks to my heart, that I became Mr. Code Blue...sometimes multiple times a day.
During this time Mary, my wife designated my sign as a dragonfly. Dragonflies represent New Beginnings, Transformation, Hope, Peace, and Love amongst many other things. Today, I was walking in the medical plaza for a doctors appointment when I came upon a sign that read CODE BLUE Room-Kidney. About 20 feet in the hallway lie a dead dragonfly.
The message and symbolism was not lost on me. I survived my ordeal and have proven at the age of 64-65 it's never too late to transform yourself, start a new beginning, find hope and love and peace.
Embrace this day, for no one can determine the paths that you choose.
