Surgery Time Update

God bless the donor family, they have decided to harvest all of the organs, so the surgery has been pushed back. They will be bringing Lindsay to surgery at 11pm. Suzie is holding the Princess and smiling! Keep praying for all to go well. Suzie will be updating more at some time soon, but my guess is, she is busy holding the Princess.
Love,
Steph (party at my house?? I'm sure I'll be up all night! HA!)

Hi, we got your blog from Tommys carepage, we will be praying for Lindsay and praying that surgery goes as planned and for a smooth recovery. Our little girl, Lily has her Fontan scheduled for the 29th, we were at uofm on wed for her heart cath and I went to visit Colleen and hadn't heard yet about Tommys heart--when she told me it was the best news I could have gotten--what a miracle and I don't know you but thats the way I feel for your Lindsay--Ethan is really working his magic, we miss him dearly, but he really is taking care of his heart buddies. We will be praying for you and I hope to meet you soon...heart hugs,

We cruised in here via our friend Tommy's Care Page. God bless the donor family, and may His perfect hand guide the surgeons this evening. Your Lindsay is beautiful...and soon, she will be running around, powered by a new heart.

Blessings to you all!

My husband couldn't figure out what was wrong with me :) I am absolutely speechless! ALLELUIA!!!! Suze...tell your sweet girl how much we all love her and I will be praying!!!!!! I am so thankful...so absolutely thankful that her day has come. Praying for a successful surgery and a quick recovery!!!! What an awesome birthday miracle! Even better than the party you had planned I'm sure :) Thinking of all of you tonight..please keep us updated.

Suzie said it…it was Lindsay’s time, the third one!!! What a wonderful birthday present. I thought of Lindsay today as I gave blood in honor of her birthday as Suzie requested...a coincidence?! God has a plan...thanks for the update; I look forward to the one that reads Lindsay's heart is in and beating!!!! Best wishes...

Praying for all of you. I wish I was in the room when Tommy wakes up enough to learn that his little sweet friend is getting her "new Heart" as well.

Isn't God Great! What a perfect Gift for Lindsay.

You don't know me....I am from the Chicago area...originally from Michigan...found Lindsay's story from a friend's post on facebook. I am a mother of 3 young kids and can't even imagine. I believe in the power of prayer and there are many prayers tonight from our house in Illinois for Lindsay and your entire family. I will check for updates on your blog....just know prayers from a stranger are coming your way! God Bless your darling Lindsay! Katie Walther
