Sleeping Beauty

Piper's doing wonderfully. They plan to have her off the ventilator by noon tomorrow! Though she can't speak, or likely read, she's demanded her i-pad back! Though I'll continue to sneak it away to post little updates, they might be a bit further apart and considerably less dense. Will update again tomorrow!

Sleep tight everyone.

    Today starts the rest of your AMAZING life with donor lungs from someone who loved life enough to realize it is worth passing on the organs. God Bless them!

    I am a Board member of the Colorado chapter of CF and have had the opportunity to meet your Dad.

    I have heard about all the incredible false starts and am SO happy and thrilled that you have gotten past that stage.
