I know, it’s been a long time. . . a lot has happened since I wrote to you last.
Long story short for tonight:
My fisherman husband had a heart transplant August 30th.
We couldn’t believe it!
In fact, I was still waiting for the doctors over at Emory to put him on the transplant list, and before we knew it – the fisherman was not only listed, he was in surgery –
FOR A HEART TRANSPLANT!
and I couldn’t believe it was real
and I held my breath until it was over
in fact . . . I’m encouraged by our doctors to keep holding my breath
so I do.
There is so much to tell you . . . but, you know the rules of blogging.
1.) When there is time to post, there is nothing to say. 2.) when there is everything to say, there is no time to post.
For now, I know you will forgive me when I say: I just wanted to give you an update on how he was . . . on how he is.
and the word is
He IS Good!
257.) for now and forever I’ll always be grateful to our donor family. What courage they have. We will pray for them forever.
258.) the many loving friends I have met along this journey
259.) the love we have been embraced with these past few months
258.) our kids . . . oh my goodness – they are amazing
259.) my friend who flew our oldest son home to be at the hospital with us the day of the transplant – oh! my goodness – ” this simple act” as she says, it still brings me to tears.
260.) of course my mother . . . always my mother & my sister who came rushing to be at my side to wait
261.) my friend, my neighbor, my BFF came rushing too . . . the love
was is simply amazing
Much love to you, Lisa
