After surgery Ben had some bleeding so they had to take him back to the operating room to confirm if there were any tears or missed sutures. They were unable to find anything so the surgeon believed it was just the blood thinners and extra bleeding from surgery. They left him open to confirm. As of today 07.23.19 they are taking him back to close him up. It’s great news. The sooner he is closed the sooner he can get rid of the ventilator which is causing anxiety.

07/22/3019 Surgery is over! Ben has been given the GREATEST gift. He now has a new heart beating inside of him thanks to his donor in heaven. While one family was mourning the loss of their loved one they decide to donate life. The most selfless act that impacted more than one recipient.

There were times we didn’t think this day would ever come, and these last few weeks were very tough to say the least. It’s so amazing what goes into this process and all the people involved who help make this possible. Our family will be forever thankful. For those of you who don’t personally know my husband, I can tell you he is a fighter. Ben still has a long road to recovery but I have no doubt he will be back to his stubborn, caring, funny, smart ass, happy, loving self soon! Thank you everyone for your prayers! They mean more than you know! We have the best family and friends who have shown more support than we could ever hope for! It means the world! When God brings you TO it, he will also bring you THROUGH it!

We love you Lucero’s so much and pray God’s abundant blessings and healing over you all! “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” ‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:6-7‬ ‭NIV
