False Alarm and Benefit

Well today is our 2nd wedding anniversary! I am so blessed to have Larry in my life and to call him my husband is even more of a blessing! He is such an amazing person and I can't wait to spend another 60 years together! All I wanted for our Anniversary was for him to get the call for the heart. And today we got that call, they called around noon and said that they had a heart, and that they would need to check everything out to make sure it was good, they did a biopsy and a lot of other tests to make sure everything was ok. They said they would call us around 3 p.m and let us know if it was good and that we needed to pack up all of our things and be ready to leave when they called. My family was already on their way to St Louis and all of our family and friends were waiting by the phone to hear. About 2:30 rolls around and they call back, and the said it was NOT a good heart. Something came back with one of the tests and its a no go. We were devistated. I think I cried for about 2 hours and all I could think of was that I couldnt wait any longer...I can't do this for another 3 months. We have waited 3 months tomorrow, and as hard as it is to wait, I know that we want to have the best heart, not just A heart, but the PERFECT heart! So here we are, waiting again, and even though I don't want to wait any longer, I really have no choice but to hope and pray that day comes soon. I love Larry so much and to know he could have gotten a heart that was not good is scary, so we are so thankful to his surgeon who checked that heart out and found out that there was something wrong with it, if he wouldnt have done that, Larry could have been in the same boat he is in right now. So thank you all for all of your prayers! We couldn't go through this with out all of you, so keep them up please, and I know the next call will be THE call.

My wonderful co-workers are throwing Larry and I a benefit/fundraiser on Oct. 27th in St. Peters at Mark's sports bar and grill. I think it starts at 4 pm and goes all night. they will also have an silent auction. Kids are welcome to come from 4 to 8. After 8 pm the kids are no longer aloud to stay in the bar. I will have more on this later, but I wanted to keep you all informed.There is also a donate button on the right side of this page, if you will not be able to make the benefit, and would like to donate, please feel free to click on that.
