So at Cole's football game on Saturday, a helicopter flew over and Suzie said "I still get chills every time I hear a helicopter." Knowing that she must have been thinking "is someone getting a transplant?" every time the chopper flew in or out, I now say a little thank you and prayer for who ever is on that helicopter... so tonight when I heard the helicopter 20 minutes after I talked to Suzie telling me that she was taking Lindsay in to the Emergency Room, I got chills and called Suzie making sure that it wasn't for Lindsay. And the answer was "No, that one wasn't for her, but her ride from Ann Arbor is coming." WHAT!!!!
Suzie brought Lindsay into the ER tonight with a fever (of 103), and because she was very tired and a couple other symptoms that are signs of rejection. They are worried she is rejecting her heart! So they are sending her to Ann Arbor to figure out what is going on. After Lindsay leaves by helicopter, Suzie and JR will drive over and be with her. They were doing flu swabs and strep swabs to see if she had either of these and blood tests, but the doctors in Ann Arbor wanted her where they could take care of her. Forgive me for not knowing more details... all I know is that we need to pray that she is not rejecting her transplant. Pray for Suzie and JR and their family. Pray for the doctors and nurses and helicopter pilot. PRAY!! ...thank you! love, Stephanie posting for Suzie
