Good Friday, GREAT Lungs!

Okay guys, third time's the charm, right?

I got THE CALL for new lungs at 2 pm and somehow I just know these lungs are right for me. I am here at the hospital and feeling SO good about this time, so at peace, and so happy. Today is Good Friday, it's a new season, and it's spring: truly a time of new life, new breath, and REBIRTH. I am so excited!

Thank God for this wonderful, wonderful miracle. And please keep the donor family and the donor in your thoughts and prayers as you send them love and light during this period of loss. I am praying that they have as peaceful a transition as possible, and that this holiday weekend -- a true time of New Life born from ultimate sacrifice -- may bring them the knowledge that their great gift is truly a blessing for so, so many.

My sister will update as possible once we know more and while I am in surgery receiving MY lungs! As always, thank you all so much for your love and support -- I feel so lifted up right now (as I have for the past few days), and I know that is all thanks to you guys and the prayers that continue to come from all over!

Much much love and light to all of you for this beautiful weekend!
