As most of you know, Rick has been struggling with lung disease for some time now and was recently accepted to a donor transplant list. He was moved to number one on that list Thursday and within 24 hours he was called to come to the hospital and prepare for the transplant!  It has been a whirlwind for everyone since then. He went into surgery about 1:30 on Saturday and it finished at 11:59 last night! Everything went very well, praise God! Everyone's prayers were felt all day as family and friends stayed together during the surgery.  We cannot thank the Doctors, nurses, and staff enough for taking care of Rick during this time and the upcoming days and months.  It will be a long process and we will try to keep you informed along the way.
