Seems so simple...until the heart of a loved one starts to give up.
My father in law has had one helluva year, to put it lightly. I haven't shared this with you all, but it's time to call in the troops, ie blog girlfriends, and ask for some prayers.
Sheldon has a heart that's tired. It's worn out. It's ready to call it quits, but his body is not. After many, many trips to the Kansas Heart Hospital over the past few years, the docs are now ready to start talking about the possibility of a heart transplant.
Those words are pretty powerful, eh?
Yet they also bring hope.
Over the next couple weeks, he'll make the trip to Saint Luke's in Kansas City. Over the course of 2-3 appointments, Saint Luke's will determine what our chances are of getting him on "the list." From there, we wait. There are lots of hurdles to jump, but we're ready to start jumping.
Please pray for Sheldon & our family as we embark on this long, long journey.
Pray for the board who will make the life altering decision on if Sheldon is qualified to receive a new heart.
But most of all, pray for the family that will lose a loved one in order for ours to live....
Hug & kiss those you love today and everyday!!!
