K received his new heart at 3:00 am today.
B called me at 9:30, and said that he was doing well, they' are obviously keeping an eye on him, but this afternoon he was coming out of the anesthesia and sedation, followed directions, and opened his eyes when he heard B's voice. H, their 4-year old son is ready to play baseball with him, now that he's got his new heart.
He has a long road ahead of him, but K is on his way.
*p.s. Newt reminded me of the huge loss another family endured last night. They have been in my thoughts -- if only they knew the enormity of the gift they have given.
