Well, I slept in a little at the RMH today and then did some work and ran some errands for the birthday party coming up before I headed to the hospital to see the princess. While I was working, I thought in my mind when I heard the noise, man, the helicopter is landing awfully close today. And then I went about my business. Later after lunch time, I arrived here at the hospital. Lindsay was sleeping and Margarite wanted to take me around and show me how to get into the conference room on Saturday and Sunday to get prepared for the party. After that, I came back and fed Lindsay and we were just rocking in the chair spending quality time together. One of the other heart moms in the room said, "Suzie, have you talked to Colleen?" I said, "No. Why?" Jessica said, "Have you read his carepage?" (I have Tommy's carepage linked to the blog) (ME) "Not today, but I did last night, why?" Jessica, "He is getting his heart right now!!!" As you can imagine, I was completely overjoyed with the news and mad at the same time that the nurses let me go almost a whole hour without telling me!!!! (hee hee) Yeah, Yeah, HIPAA shmipa! So, needless to say, I burped my baby, laid her down to play, and went right over to the ICU waiting room to hug Colleen and her husband. She proceeded to tell me about "the call" at 1:30 his morning and that they had to be here at the hospital at 8:30 or so this morning. The other story that she shared with me was that Tommy wanted to see Lindsay in the worst way before surgery. The first attempt, Lindsay was sleeping. Then before Tom was supposed to go back to the operating room to get his new heart, Lindsay was awake but Tommy needed to go then and there to the operating room. This little boy just amazes me. He wanted to see Lindsay before his surgery. (You can see at picture of Tommy and Lindsay under my posting for May 12th)Talk about pulling at the heart strings!!!!! He was reassured that he could see her after his surgery was over. I can't wait for that. As of right now, the new heart is in, beating fine, and they are working on getting him off of bypass. Please pray for the Shomaker's and pray that Tommy gets off bypass fine and just sails through and recovers swiftly! We love you Tommy! Go Tommy Go! I think a special angel had a hand in this..........We miss you Ethan!
Heart Blessings on this very exciting day!
