When Tammy and I were driving to the hospital this morning we received a text message from Collin's phone. It was a picture of him sitting up in a chair! His therapist sent it to us. When we walked in he was still sitting up and looked great! He was a bit crabby (and I can't say I blame him) but we all know it is for the best. He will take his first post-transplant steps at noon today! It is amazing to think of what he is already able to do! It is a direct reflection of all of the hard work he has put in; and also a direct reflection of the dedication and push from his therapists, nurses, and doctors. He is lucky to have the absolute best team working with him! Everyone from Mankato to Minneapolis that has helped along the way have made this all possible! We thank each and every one of you!! And to the donors family, whoever and wherever you are, thank you for making the choice of organ donation!!! You (literally) have a special place in our family!!
As always, thank you for the continued prayers and positive thoughts!! They are absolutely working! Please keep them coming!
