The Miracles

Of Heart Transplants!!! My Mom was listed on the Heart Transplant List for only 24 days before receiving the call that they had a heart for her on October 18th. That was one week ago today. Everything went great through the surgery and Mom has improved each day. She is suppose to be moved out of CRVU today and into her own room on the Transplant ward. We've all been by her side since the 18th so it's been a really long and tiring week. Hubbie and I drove back from Charlotte this afternoon so I can get caught up on some things before I head back on Monday. I'm probably going to be off line for a little while longer until Mom recovers enough to go home. We hoping that will happen sometime next week. she's got her 1st biopsy on Monday so keep your fingers crossed there's no rejection. I really appreciate everyone, especially the Pals, who've kept my family in they're prayers. I will keep updating as much as possible.
