We hope everyone had a safe, happy and love filled holiday season with friends and family! Robb's family joined us for Thanksgiving and did all the cooking! They also came for Christmas which was extra special for Ford. He is 3 years old and really getting into Santa - which makes it very enjoyable as a parent!
Robb continues to remain steady, which is really good news. He now has only a few appointments per month (reduced quite a bit from those first few months) and continues to patiently wait for a heart. Robb has a rare blood type: O- (which can only receive from O-, but is also the universal donor type) and as most of you know he is very tall - which means that finding a size and blood type match can take time while being prioritized on the UNOS list.
Cleveland has been a very nice play to settle in and we are happy with the Avon Lake community. Ford is doing well in preschool and the weather has not been as harsh as we imagined living so close to the lake.
Thank you so very much to everyone who has sent their prayers, love and support! We are truly grateful for such amazing family, friends and friends of friends!
We will continue to keep everyone updated as things progress and of course when the actual transplant happens!
Love, ~Carah (Robb's wife and friend)

All, We continue to be overwhelmed with the support and love our family receives. We are almost at 50% of our goal and sincerely appreciate every single donation!
Quick Update: Robb's heart listing status has been elevated, which shortens the time until his transplant. There are still a number of sicker people on the list ahead of him, but it is an important step in the right direction!
We will continue to provide periodic updates. Thank you again for the notes, love, sharing, support and for the donations!
Gratefully and with Love, Carah
