A little about me...
254, Ecto-Mesomorthph, INTP, type 5 with a 4 wing... I am an Architect in the truest sense, because that term has been grossly polluted in Western culture over the past 20 years or so. Career-wise, I have departed seeking more supple shores (ie. Art & Invention). Father of 3 Girls, the oldest one of whom was born with half a heart, Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS), later receiving the gift of a transplanted heart at the age of 4 (counting open-heart surgeries by then at 4), only to fail a year later and to be blessed again with a second gift of another Heart Transplant (Stanford University). She lived and thrived with this heart for two more years, only to die suddenly in a routine checkup. We miss her terribly.

Keiki Naia. Your kid had some spunk, didn't she?

Thank you for sharing her with us.

I hope you have the comfort of a fairy forest for her somewhere.

Michaela. Keiki Naia (the name she wanted us to call her). Born with half of a heart, Heart Transplant at 4 years old, and another at 5. Died during a routine checkup at Stanford 2 years later, one that led to urgent precautionary measures while they investigated an anomaly...one of those were mishandled.
