And, as promised, for Danielle Holtzman! "The" bow! This is the first time that she has ever had it on because we were saving it for this special day!
Yes, I was holding the princess and smiling!!! Well, needless to say, I am still shaking,crying,and smiling all at the same time.......and a killer headache to boot. But........who cares about a headache!!!!!!!!!! LINDSAY IS GETTING HER HEART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It has just been crazy the last few hours and when I say that, I mean a GREAT crazy! JR got the phone call today from Dr. G and then of course called me afterwards. I was at work getting my toes done!!! I cried like a baby and started making phone calls to try and quickly make plans. I had only been in town about 45 minutes! A little while later, I spoke with Dr. G and he is the match is just perfect! That's right, he said perfect!!!!!!!! There should be no concerns about antibodies at all!!! (I'm knocking on wood as I type that!) GOD IS SO GOOD!! Ethan, you are an incredible little boy and I just know you had a hand in this!!!!!!
Lindsay's surgeon, Dr. Devaney, is on vacation so Dr. Ohye will be doing the transplant. He does most of them here at U of M and he did Tommy's yesterday too! I will be posting as we get updates through the wee hours of the morning and looks like, if things go as planned, Lindsay will be up in the ICU around 7am. So, hold on to your seats. It's going to be a LONG night!!!!
Please pray for the the donor family tonight. They have given us the greatest gift ever!
PRAY PRAY PRAY
Love a very grateful mommy and daddy,
Suzie and JR
