it rang


Jason's phone rang at 1:28 pm, Sunday Sep 16.
It was the call.

We stopped getting ready for church and started getting ready for a trip to the hospital. Once in the hospital Jason got prepped for transplant (lots of blood work, pee sample, signed paperwork etc). Then we waited... and waited and waited and waited... until 12:58 am when we heard the happy news that they had some beautiful lungs for Jason.
Now they are whisking him away for a very long surgery that will surely change our lives forever. It will be a very long surgery, so here's to a very long night! Cheers!

We'll keep the Team Jason FB page updated as best we can.
And I'll try to stop by here when I can steal a minute.

Thank you for your prayers and good luck wishes. We feel your support are so grateful for you.
We are keeping our donor's loved ones, whoever they might be, in our thoughts and prayers as well.
Please remember them too.

I've commented a few times ever since I found your blog via The Daybook (I think I wrote you once about how we have nothing in common except being in love and how we've been praying for you). Have been checking in to see if you guys have finally gotten "the call." My husband and I have been praying for you two. And then I checked and saw this post and was surprised to find my eyes welling up with tears, since I've never met either of you, but find myself overjoyed that Jason has received his gift. We are praying for more good news in your future. I can't even imagine what a stressful time this must be for you two, but what grace and love you have displayed here on your blog. To say we're happy for you and Jason doesn't even describe it. Congratulations on the wonderful news! You guys deserve it so very much.
