Well its official! United Network for Organ Sharing "UNOS". John is on the list! Now the real waiting begins, 2 days, 2 weeks, 2 months, who knows? God knows and all will be in His timing. What crazy emotions we both are going through. You see, little over 17 years ago last November when John and I lost our son Ryan, Ryan was a donor, and now his dad has a chance to be a receiver, like paying it forward, so to speak. Who knew? God knew, He knows all....please lift us up in your thoughts and prayers, pray all goes well and John's opportunity arrives soon as his breathing and activity levels are slowing down. And let us not forget the donor and their family for giving the ultimate gift of life. Thank you Lord for this opportunity to have my husband for many more years. Time to go pack our bags and prepare our hearts and thoughts for the big adventure. Thanks again for all your thoughts, support, donations and prayers. Keep them coming!

Today is listing day at IU Methodist......having Hope! When we give ourselves something to look forward to, no matter how great or small the event, we are giving ourselves the gift of hope. And where there's hope built into tomorrow, there are all kinds of possibilities for overcoming whatever obstacles we face today. Thank you Jesus for the gift of hope!
