The transplant team asked to meet with my daughter and her husband at 8:00 this evening. The purpose of the meeting was to let them know that there is a heart for Austin! To sum up what I’m feeling tonight is what I posted in my daughter’s Prayers for Austin Facebook group page a short while ago, and that is:
“Dear Lord, I pray for peace and comfort for the donor family. I pray that they will be blessed abundantly for they have given the gift of life, not only to Austin but to many other children as well – since they are donating ‘everything’. I humbly bow my heart in gratitude that we are blessed to be one of the families to receive this precious gift.”
Austin’s heart transplant surgery will begin sometime between 8:00 and 12:00 tomorrow morning. Surgery will take approximately 8 hours. They’ve started anti-rejection medications tonight. Please pray for all to go well.
