Poppy was just taken back to the OR to begin to get ready for her new heart. They are expecting her heart to arrive around 4:30am and for her to be out of the OR by 8am. Please pray for a miraculous time in the OR for all involved. Lord, make your presence known!!
Today around 4:30, Poppy and I were visited by 3 of the transplant coordinators. They walked in and started by saying, ‘are you ready for a long night? You better get some rest because you have a long night ahead of you!!’ Trembling I burst into sobbing tears of joy all over the transplant coordinators!! I literally ran downstairs to the pool where Brad and Crosby were passing the time and may have made a huge scene? 😉 We are still trembling- thank you Jesus.
This is all so surreal- so truly overwhelming. Our girl will come back from the OR no longer dusky gray, but pink!!! I cannot wait to see our darling girl on the road to feeling better!! Oh this precious gift of life we have been blessed with receiving!! So incredibly overwhelming. Miraculous. God is so good- He never leaves us or forsakes us- praise Jesus!!
There are really no words to describe how much gratitude we feel for this precious gift our Poppy has been blessed with. Our prayers tonight are for the donor family. We pray for God’s divine peace to surround them and comfort them as they mourn their deep tragedy. We pray also for Poppy- that this new heart would be an unforgettable symbol of God’s never ending love and faithfulness. We pray also for those families whose precious child is still waiting and those sweet ones who have already gone on to be with Jesus. Lord, surround their families with your love and comfort and peace in knowing that Your timing is the most perfect timing. Help us to never forget just how special each day is with our loved ones you have so richly blessed us with. Help us to seek Your will for our lives in all things and in all ways give You and only You the honor and glory forever. Amen.
