I just got a surprise FaceTime call from Brian. They were going to keep him sedated for the night but decided to pull the intubation tube. He’s on a lot of medications and he fell asleep a few times during the short call but being able to hear him and see that he’s okay made my day. He said he can breathe and he can feel his hands and feet again. His heart had so much scar tissue that it couldn’t pump enough blood to his limbs and he lost the feeling in them. It’s such a huge change and it hasn’t even been 24 hours yet. Excitement is starting to take the place of the anxiety and I’m really looking forward to what the next weeks will bring. He was very insistent that I let everyone know how thankful he is for all the thoughts and prayers. He hasn’t seen any of the posts yet and I’m sure he’s going to be shocked when he sees just how many people have reached out. ❤️

Brian got done with surgery at about 2 am and the surgeon said he did well! They’ll be bringing him to his room soon where they’ll continue to let him sleep. We’re all excited to hear how he feels when he wakes up and can breathe again, but right now we’re just incredibly grateful that he was gifted this new lease on life.

He has a lot of healing in front of him but it’s an amazing feeling to know that finally, he will be healing. Thank you all for all the posts and messages filled with so much love and support. They made me tear up and I know Brian will feel the same when he’s able to see them. Now I get the privilege of waking the kids to give them the news they’ve been waiting to hear for so long. I’m sure they’ll be walking on air today.

You are one of the strongest people I have had the pleasure of knowing. I have watched as you have fought this battle with poise and a calm confidence. It is truly admirable and I can't wait to see you when you get back home. I'll see ya soon bud. Love you!

Just heard about this journey you have all been and it makes me tear up to hear how difficult and scary it’s been. Brian, Krista, the kids and whole family—you are all in my prayers as your body heals from surgery and may this be a new lease on life for you all! While we haven’t stayed in touch much since high school, Brian you’re such a strong person you’ll pull through. You deserve it! Prayers also go out to the donor’s family for the priceless gift and grief they aware going thru.
God Bless.
