The Holidays and Donating

Well the holidays are among us, and as we are getting ready for Christmas, all we can think about is that the best Christmas present of all, would be a heart transplant for Larry. Unfortunately Larry has been back in the hospital a couple of times since the last time we wrote on our blog. (Sorry we haven't written in a long time) Due to his infections, his body is immune to most of the medicines, and sadly they only have ONE medicine left to give him if he were to get another infection. This is SO SCARY...we can not afford for him to get another infection. We need to get him a heart before that happens. It seems like we are on pins and needles waiting for that call, the longer it takes, the harder it is to wait. Unfortunately Larry can not travel or be around very many people at one time, because of this reason. He can't be around anyone if they are sick, and we have to be careful going anywhere in public with him. Which means our families are coming to us for Christmas this year! He can't be around our extended families, there are just too many people and so our Christmas this year will be small and with our immediate families. We thank everyone for all of your prayers! They help so much! Knowing that you all are praying for Larry and I is what is keeping us strong. We also need everyone to remember to go to http://donatelife.net/register-now/ and register to donate your organs! Please share it with all of your friends and family as well! There are over 74,000 people waiting for an organ right at this moment.

We hope all of our family and friends have a Very Merry Christmas and a safe and HEALTHY New Year!!

I am going to finish with This quote from the Unos.org website. Please read and really think about what you are reading. "Without the organ donor, there is no story, no hope, no transplant. But when there is an organ donor, life springs from death, sorrow turns to hope and a terrible loss becomes a gift."-2009 UNOS Annual report.
