A Heart for Easter

I can't believe I am actually posting this after a bad news post like yesterdays, but......................



Mason is getting a heart for Easter!


Yes, it is true!! Mason is going to the OR at 8:00 am to be prepped for transplant surgery. Mark and I were notified last night around 9:00 that there was a possible match for Mason. Dr. Rosenthal came to the CVICU to talk with us explaining that they had a good match, but were just waiting for a few more details to finalize it. We were absolutely in shock!



As we waited over the next hour for the final word, we began to count all the hidden blessings that have taken place to make this the perfect weekend for Mason to receive his new heart. With all our family together, what could be any better Easter gift than this?!!!



Around 10:30pm we got the final word that YES this was THE HEALTHY NEW HEART for MASON!!!!! We told the great news to our kids. They are so excited!!! And how wonderful that they are here right now to be with us at such a special time.



On this Easter day we are so grateful for the life of our Savior and all the many ways he continues to bless our life.



The heart should arrive to the OR at 10:00 am and Mason will probably be in surgery until 2pm. I will post through out the day as we are updated!



Please pray with us this day that Mason will be comforted during this surgery and that his surgeons will have the hand of our lord with them as well.
