I woke to my phone buzzing over and over again. As I reached for my phone, I looked at the time and it was 4:59am AST. I quickly thought, PLEASE be good information......
It was Jessica Louise Carver's father Roger whom I refer to as Roja. I could tell by his voice that it was a good call. "Brad, I just got off the phone with the surgeon and he said the operation is done and it went great". RELIEF is the best way to describe my emotions. I felt like I won the lottery, just finished a marathon and shit my pants at the same time. It was quite the feeling.... You should try :)
There were no complications during the operation and they described it as great. We could not ask for a better Christmas gift. Knowing Jess very well, once she wakes she will be working hard to get out by Chistmas :)
My last comment before I sound off. Anyone that reads or has read this blog, understands the importance of organ donation. Please, Please, Please spread the word and help others understand how signing up to be an organ donor can and will give others the gift of life. Having CF, Jess required this gift to live and there are SO many more that are waiting as well. Thank you donor, Thank you donor family and Thank all of you who send send best wishes to Jess. She has amazing family and friends.
Carman and Kristy, You are next :)
