July 29, 2015 Raymond was put on the active call list today. We are beyond thrilled & nervous. Just knowing that you could get the call at any time is overwhelming. Raymond tested positive for the CMV Virus so he will have to take the most expensive medicine for a full year. Most people only take it for less than 6 months. We will need to do a lot more fundraising. Thank you all for your prayers & donations! God Is Great!!

So thankful the liver specialist said there is nothing to worry about with Raymond's liver. He is a carrier for Hemocromatocis. June 6, 2015, we were told to relocate to Durham, NC. We are all settled in our little apartment. Every day brings us closer to getting new lungs for Raymond. He is still doing rehab & we are going to a lot of classes to learn all we can to prepare us. Thank you all for your continued prayers & support. Kathy Collier
