So we had our first "dry run" today, the nurse came in at about 1pm and took blood because she said they had a possible donor. But after 4 hours of wait time the doctor came in and told us that the heart went to someone that was a better match. Oh well, we know that our time will come and we are joyful for the person that did get to receive this gift of life.
Dave did really good today, as a matter of fact right now he is sitting up eating a double portion of low sodium turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy. It is his fave around here, and it is what they serve every Thursday night.
We are all hanging in there and trying to be as positive as we can, everyday brings new challenges and new rewards. Please continue to pray for our strength and that we keep our eyes to the Lord during this time. I go home tomorrow and Dave will be by himself until Doug gets here on Saturday, so please pray for his comfort while he is alone.
