It's official, We have a donor!

For the past few weeks, a very generous woman has been going through all of the testing to be Parker's donor. I struggled with posting the details throughout the process, because, to be honest, I got pretty freaked out. We have worked so hard to get to this point. It has literally been our main focus for two years now, but when the time came to start the process, I got scared shitless.

Today, however, I felt a huge sigh of relief. I know it will be hard. I know it will be scary. But, I know we will get through this. My baby will have a second chance at life. One where there is no tube coming from his belly! One where machines aren't keeping him alive. One where he can take an actual bath, instead of being wiped down with a soapy towel. All because of a very special woman.

Patty Martin, what you are giving us is indescribable, and I will never be able to thank you enough. You have just gained another family, whether you know it or not. It takes a very selfless person to do what you are doing.

There will be many more cry sessions like today, I promise!

Bye bye tubes!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
