Prayers for Matthew

Mason's sweet little buddy Matthew received a very 
special and miraculous gift two night ago.....
the gift of a new heart!

This is actually Matthew's second heart transplant,because his first heart was attacked by coronary artery disease. Two days ago Matthew received this 2nd donor heart after months of prayers on his behalf and just in time to save his life! Matthew was on the list for 239 days and in the hospital waiting for 164 of those days. Just 3 days before he received this special new heart he had a heart attack and became extremely ill. This is just another testament that prayers are answered and miracles do happen (and sometimes with not much time to spare)!! Our family has prayed day and night for Mason's buddy Matthew.....and we are so grateful to know him! Someday soon Mason and Matthew can actually have a play date OUTSIDE of the hospital!!

Please pray for Matthew as he recovers from his transplant surgery and that his body will accept this special new heart! And please pray for Matthew's donor family as they have thought to give life at a time of their great loss.
