Survival

One year ago today, Paul called out of work because he felt "off", I was headed to the Phoenix Ronald McDonald House with paper towels and toilet paper and it was another manic Monday of waiting.

Until 1147am on May 17, 2010, the same time this is entry is posting, I entered a blog entry that changed our world. Gabriella got her heart call, and we were on our way to California for a life saving 4.5 month stay.

Today, Gabriella is stronger, bigger, smarter, older and happier because of her sparkly new heart. That heart sparkles not only because of the life and health in it and the spirit of Abbie that resides inside, but because of the external love and support all of our family, friends and even strangers gave to us.

And do you know what this also means??? I can say we successfully got through, with minimal effort, the "critical first year". In transplant living, this is monumental. Statistics show nerve wracking numbers, but statistics do not apply to us. God does not operate by statistics, and we remain faithful to His plan. We give all control up to Him and praise Him for his miracles.
