Many of you may already know & I'm so sorry I haven't posted this yet, but the wonderful news is that Maurice received the blessing of a new heart on Sept. 23rd and he is doing fantastic. He's had no complications, thank God, and absolutely zero signs of rejection! Dr. Cristiano Caldeira, one of the top cardiac surgeons in the country who implanted Maurice's ventricular assist device, was also his transplant surgeon and we could not be more thankful for his outstanding skill and compassion, as well as that of Maurice's cardiologist, Dr. Benjamin Mackie, and all of the incredible members of the Tampa General transplant and VAD teams. They are all the cream of the crop. And of course, none of this would have been possible without the help of each one of you! We say a prayer of thanks every day for you and we certainly will never, ever forget how you have helped us come this far. The future is looking very bright these days and we owe it all to our Lord and to the amazing heroes he has placed in our lives- YOU!! We have been so humbled and astounded at the outpouring from literally all over the world and as far away as Japan! It's impossible to put into words our appreciation for your great generosity. We also want to send a special shout-out to all of our wonderful family members who have been supporting us in every way since day one & Dr. Mark Asperilla & Dr. David Kline, without whom we would not be celebrating today. And we'd like to ask you to please keep our donor family in your thoughts and prayers. Their gift to us is beyond comprehension and we will forever be in their debt. Thank you all so much and God bless you!!
