Little over a week ago, I posted a short story about my good friend’s daughter who experienced some serious heart issues and needed a new heart.
It’s not something you just buy on Amazon or eBay, and you, unfortunately, have to wait until a suitable donor is found – which also means you have to wait until another person passes away.
It is a tragic event, but a tragedy that saves a life. In this case my friend’s daughter’s life.
Over the weekend, I was informed that a heart had been found and that she would need heart surgery that night.
Part of me super thrilled and ecstatic. She is given a lifeline and can celebrate a new life and many more birthdays with family and friends. I wish I could be there and give them a bear hug, and show my support.
I’m also very anxious about the family as heart surgery is not a simple procedure. Yes, they have done many similar surgeries and it is becoming a common procedure. Yet, it comes with risks that we need to take to make this life good.
I pray with all my heart that surgery goes well and that she will go into recovery quick, and that recovery will be positive.
It will be a long journey ahead of the family, but my friend is strong and this will be a beautiful life change.
Please keep her and the family in your prayers!
She is a true Heart Warrior – I’m just a novice in her presence. Stay strong!
