A: Sandra Rinomato
Q: Who has the best boyfriend in the world and is also an ICU superhero?
Q: What did the best boyfriend in the world arrange & the above 2 things have in common??
A: 10AM hangout ---------->
Brad made this happen. SO freaking cool. I've probably seen every single episode of Sandra's shows and a few of those I've seen twice. Brad put this in motion before I was even discharged from the slammer (aka the hospital).
She is awesome guys!!
We were there for an hour and had such a great visit. Her husband is from PEI, as is Brad, so they had lots to discuss.
I didn't wear the red kicks, but pretty sure I radiated coolness anyway. Who doesn't look amazing all dressed nice, make-up on, earrings in and oxygen cannula shoved up the nostrils?

Buy Herself is consistently in the top 5 of all shows on HGTV Canada, but isn't currently being aired in the US. Sign the petition below to get a 2nd season and to get it picked up by HGTV USA:
Do it! Dooooo it! I'll give you one of two things if you do:
1. A tall hazelnut blonde
2. One date with B-rad
What happened next was incredible. Some people believe in coincidences, me...I believe that everything happens for a reason.
Yesterday, Brad was looking for a place to get a haircut; a place that doesn't try to stuff your entire wallet down its throat. We couldn't find anything close, so I suggested waiting until today since we were going to see Sandra and could then look in that area.
After we left Sandra, we found a spot. While Brad was getting his hair cut he overheard the woman next to him telling her hair stylist an extremely emotional story. Her best friend's family was in a car accident. Her best friend's son was on life support and was sadly taken off two days ago.
Breathe Jess, just breathe.
She said what has brought them some comfort is that the family donated his organs.
Obviously this was emotional for Brad and he debated going over to her. In the end he felt compelled to. He explained that he overheard her story, told her about me and that he would love for her to meet me.
He brought me to her. It was so emotional. A moment in life that you never forget. One of those moments when you know, you just know, you were supposed to cross paths. Before we left we gave her this blog link. If you are reading please pass this on. If you've passed this on to your best friend, this is for you.
Please know that this comes from the bottom of my heart. In your moment of heart-wrenching tragedy, you gave the most precious, selfless gift that anyone can give. The enormity of that will never be lost; your son will live on through all the people whose lives he saved. I'm sure he's extremely proud of your decision and is smiling down at you all.
I don't know you, but I love what you've done. Many families will deeply love and appreciate you, even though they will never know you. I hope you can find at least some peace knowing that your son lives on through others.
From someone waiting for that incredible and beautiful gift of life...thank you.
Last, but absofreakinglutely just as important:
I had transplant clinic today...
I've been moved to status 2.
Due to my recent stay at the Hilton, aka the ICU, and the progression that has staked a solid claim on my body, I am a status 2.
Last week Red dreamed that I received my new windbags...
