I was just looking at that as well. I was trying to figure out where the "primary" kiddo was for the heart. Can "O" type take any blood type?? Is it universal?? I couldn't figure it out. Unless there was a kiddo in another region that was in serious need?

Anyway... I am fascinated by the data!

Did you hear that St Joes listed a kiddo?

I keep reading, and praying...and I just know any minute I'm going to be thrown to my knees to Praise Jesus that Gabriella is getting her heart! You guys are always on our hearts and in our prayers.

Much love!
