Some of you may know that my niece has Cystic Fibrosis and has been on the Lung transplant list since Nov 2013, last night she got the "call'. Luckily she was in hospital here when it came and they sent an air ambulance to pick her and my brother up. She is now in surgery, which will take about six hours. The waiting and not knowing is so hard. I wish I was there with my brother right now, he has been sick himself.
I am very happy that this is finally happening, but at the same time I feel a deep sadness for the donors family. Today they lost a son, daughter, brother, sister, a much loved member of their family, and I cannot express how that makes me feel. I thank them from the bottom of my heart for this wonderful gift of life they are giving Tracey.
So please say a prayer for Tracey that it all goes smoothly and to the family of the donor for the distress they must be feeling.
