Don got THE phone call Sunday morning, Dec. 9, 2018, at 5 am. We got stuff together and made it to the hospital by 7:30 am. At 11:30 am they collected him to go to the surgery prep room. About 2 pm, his surgeon went by the waiting room saying they just got the lung and would be in surgery. By 5:30-6:00 he was out of surgery. Everything went well with no complications. Day by day Don got better, all tubes and ventilators have been removed and except for a small blood clot in one leg, he is rearing to get home. He will go home with blood thinner as well as his anti-rejection medicine may be as early as Monday or Tuesday! Please donate to his fundraiser so we are not crippled by these bills. Thank you so much doe the donations thus far and the many well wishes and prayers.
