This is from a Facebook post I wrote one month after loosing Melanie.  

So I kinda wrestled with God last night. I told Him I did not like that he took Melanie from me and that I did not like that he didn’t give her a chance at transplant. I told him I didn’t understand why He did it this way. I cried and I told him I was mad at Him and I didn’t like the choice He made. Then I told Him that even though I didn’t like it I would trust Him. I would trust that His plan is better then mine. I went to sleep and woke up this morning with an unexpected peace. I still miss her terribly and I’m sure I always will but today it is a little easier

  1. Hi! I am very sorry for your loss. I am 19 years old, which is about how old Melanie was if I am correct. I also have Cystic Fibrosis. My little sister is 16 and has CF as well, and was just listed last week. I received my transplant just a few weeks before your daughter lost her battle, and for that I am truly and utterly sorry. I will be thinking about Melanie for a long time. It’s amazing how someone you barely know and have never met can impact you. I encourage you to read some of the other blogs that other CFers and their families write. It is great to see that you aren’t alone. We really are one big family and will always support one another.
    All my love,
    Jordan McCaskill
