sleeping beauty...

has awakened!!!

(gary and linda)

i hadn't posted an update because linda (see previous post) decided to take a little extra time to awaken... the transplant team expected her to wake up from her surgery on tuesday night (the night of her surgery).
however, linda didn't decide to do so until...


to say that we were starting to get a little worried about her would be an understatement. however, the worry turned to relief when her son called this morning to say that her venthilator had been taken out and she had been sitting up in a chair early this morning (thursday)...


thank you all for your kind words, thoughts, and prayers:)

love and God's blessings,
dani xx

Oh, thank God, Dani! Katherine's been worried sick about it, and I'm just so, so, so happy to hear that she finally woke up. It's more than great news---or even fantastic news, for that matter. It's a blessing. It really is.

love and a GIANT hug to all of you,

Sitting up in her chair--wow!!!

That must have been scary at first though--continuing to pray :)
