Mr. Lewin, my math teacher, told me after class that he’s been thinking about my story, and said it was remarkably inspirational. It flattered me, and I really thank him for what he said. He told me I should write about this and I told him I was considering it.
I also interviewed Mr. Lewin. Mr. Lewin is my math teacher. He’s the one that told me to write my story (see October 5, 2018).
He’s so nice to me. He told me that it was amazing that I was doing so well socially, academically, and physically. As a teacher, he’s seen other students struggle, but not with anything as life threatening as me. As a teacher, he’s also seen other students with great families, communities, education, and finances, yet they make bad decisions and end up falling to the bottom.
If you’re in the hospital, just know that you need to have hope. Hope is the one thing that’s guaranteed by yourself. When you survive your ordeal, you’ll become stronger as a person. That’s something to hope for.
A student spilled water onto his floor multiple times. The floor is carpet, so mold can grow on it. Mr. Lewin chastised that student, because if I get an infection from the mold, then that’s… bad.
Today was a Pink Dot Club meeting. We watched the videos submitted for the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital (see November 25, 2018 for my video). We watched ‘This is my Story #1” first. It took the entire period.
The club president still hasn’t watched “This Is My Story #2”. That video was my transplant story. It’s the most important video because it supposed to give the patient’s hope.
After the Pink Dot Club meeting, I shared “This Is My Story #1 & #2” with Mr. Lewin, my math teacher. He’s really interested with my story.
Today I visited Mr. Lewin at his classroom after school. I wanted to check up — well, not check up. I shouldn’t say that. More like say “hello” and tell him I was doing fine.
He was excited to see me! And I was excited to see him.
I told him everything, well, everything except Tasty. I wanted to tell him later.
But I told him how I met Donor Network West, me speaking at Sonoma for Make-A-WIsh, and transplant camp. After I updated him about my summer, he said he was glad to see I was doing great.
Mr. Lewin told me I was glad I stopped by because he was thinking about me sporadically over the summer. Just yesterday, he was talking with someone about heart failure and he thought, “Oh wow, I know someone like him!”
I’m planning to see him a week later and tell him everything about Tasty. I can’t wait to see his reaction.
