Well, to start this off, Lindsay has had her best day yet!!! She was her normal self today and was simply delightful. My heart is just so full right now with happiness because of her perfect day. She had no fever and didn't vomit once!! WHOO HOO!! We were also told today that she is able to be listed on the transplant list as ABO too. What that means is that she would be able to accept a heart no matter the blood type. That opens so many more doors for her. There is still the fact of the antibodies, etc. but she had her first dose of Rituximab and did fantastic. They were looking for allergic reactions but she didn't have any. My daughter is my hero!!!!
This Thanksgiving I really can't even put into words what I'm thankful for because it is so much! This is probably why I'm such a blubbery mess these days because you can't help to think that this could be our only Thanksgiving with Lindsay. Of course you never want that to be true and you want to have many, many more, but then I think of all of the other heart families out there that don't have their babies to love during the holidays and I feel incredibly blessed to still have her here on earth. Every day is a gift and we try to make each day the best it can be because we cannot predict what will happen tomorrow. As we are thinking of that, please put Connor in your prayers tonight. He is linked on the right. He is not doing very well and doctors are not giving him a very good prognosis. We have become good friends with his parents, Michelle and Eric, and would like you to include them in your prayers. I can't imagine having to make "the" decision but here in "heart world", that can happen at any moment and I pray that God is guiding them through this and making it easier for them.
I am typing tonight with all of my boys SNORING!! in the background! ha ha I love having them all in one place and look forward to some wonderful family time this Thanksgiving. We have so many things to be thankful for and all of you are included! We thank you for being apart of our lives and caring so much for our family. We wouldn't have made it this far without your support. We are eternally grateful. May everyone have a blessed Thanksgiving and please be safe!
Love to you all,
