Transplant Day!!!

Patrick's step-mom, Lucie, has been battling liver cancer for almost three years, and has been on the liver transplant list almost that entire time. Today she got the call that they finally had a liver, and that it was a perfect match!!!

She went into surgery early this afternoon, and we just got word that she is out! Preliminary news is that it went well! Thank you, God!!!

We haven't heard if the donor was a living donor, or a cadaver donor...either way, we are keeping the donor and family in our prayers, too.

Here is a picture of us all from just about 3 weeks ago...Lucie is on the left end, in the red hat. Please keep her in your prayers.
