Great day full of hope!

Hello!! Lindsay had another great day yesterday and I couldn't be happier about it! She was very happy and playful and I enjoyed every minute. The best news of all yesterday was that of Angie Hand. Our heart friends from Alaska that came to visit us during their trip back to Michigan. She informed us of a little boy, Joshua, that just received a heart last night and he was at 95% for his antibody level! Holy Cow! They actually found a PERFECT match! We witnessed a miracle yesterday and I can't help but think that there is hope for anything to happen. However, realistically, we still have to focus on getting her antibodies down. Like I mentioned before, Lindsay will have a blood draw on Monday to see if she is ready for her next dose of rituxin. OK Andrea, here is our hope for our babies!!!! Please pray for Joshua's family (I will add the link as soon as I get it) and pray for the family that lost their child yesterday but hopefully can rejoice in the fact that they gave life back. Oh, how I feel for them. We love you all and please keep Lindsay in your prayers that this PERFECT heart comes for her. HE knows.........and it's killing me that HE won't share this information!!!! ha ha All in good time.....
Heart Blessing~

That's great news for your family Suzie,,,I'm so glad for you all, after your precious day you two had, this is great news as well to hear. I had Cole on Mon., as Cruz was sick, and was supposed to have them today, but little Cruz has the bug again. I told your mom, to let me know if she wants anything, I can come and get them if she needs me to. I hope news keeps getting better and better for you and will pray for Joshua''s family as well as you guys. Keep the good reports coming we all love it.

That blog entry made me SMILE!! I would love to read more about Joshua.. let me know if you find a website for him. I am so thrilled for his family!!

I know our little kiddos are gonna get their hearts SOON too. When do they draw Lindsay's labs again?

I love to see that the treatments are working for her. I PRAY that they are successful with Owen as well. I keep groaning about having to bring him back to the hospital SO often and him getting IV's everytime.. but really I am GRATEFUL that he can come home in between visits.

I PRAY that Lindsay will get to go home soon. She's such a trooper!!
