So day one of waiting has begun, it could be a short wait or it could be a long wait. I have switched my prayers off of his healing today to prayers of comfort for the family that will give us this gift. I firmly believe, and have shared this with David, that this person who will give us this gift has been handpicked by God and that was their sole purpose in life. I believe that person was chosen to grow and protect that heart for our Dave. How awesome a chore, if only I could be so lucky to have that be my calling.
He is doing better today, eating a bit, and all of that. He is still very pale and not 100%, but doing better. He is officially on the transplant list and today he is on the 2nd highest status (1b), but tomorrow they will be inserting a central line into his neck so that they can accurately read his heart pressures, and by doing that he will be bumped to the top of the list(1a). He is not looking forward to the procedure or the fact that afterwards he will not be able to get out of bed at all. But the total end result will be worth it.
Yesterday he was feeling pretty grouchy and all of this time in the hospital has started wearing on him and he is beginning to feel very closed in. He has spent 18 days in the hospital so far and before that he was in the ships hospital for 9 days, so he is done being stuck in a hospital. He has a ways to go though as they are keeping him here for the duration. Please pray for his comfort during this time and that he will feel more patience and ease. He needs something to take his mind off all of this and my mind has started drawing a big old blank, I am tired too! HEHE
He also got 3 cards in the mail today, one from G&G Witt (thank you!) and then 2 from other Navy Moms out there that we don't even know. Just the thought of many people praying for him around this country and out is so heart warming to me. Thank you to those who are sending him stuff and posting messages, it is doing all of our hearts good!!
