Our prayer has been answered

We got THE CALL a few hours ago.... my heart has been racing ever since!!! I feel like I just won the lottery- only this is a million times better than that!! They are busily drawing blood, doing X-rays.... AAAAhhhhhhh!! I will explain more later.

She will be getting a heart from another blood type- this is pretty much all I know... and that she will be in the OR around 6:00 am.

Please pray for my girlie- and please pray for the wonderful family who has made such a selfless decision.

Someone will be giving updates as the morning progresses- I love you all!!

Oh, I just got off the phone with my husband. He was in a car accident. GEEZ louise!!! He is fine, but I need him here NOW!
