Small Town Living

The nice part about living in a small town: When you don't know what you're doing, someone else always does.

Almost!
Those were the words that Mom heard today. She went for a check-up in B'ham and her transplant coordinator told her that the other night she almost got "the call." They had her number except the antibodies didn't match. This is going to be some of the problem in getting a match for Mom. Not impossible and could happen at anytime, sooner or later. It seemed to really shock Mom, actually hearing the words, "you almost got a call." Wow! I started shaking when she was telling me. It really could have happened! I've played it over and over in my head, exactly what I would do. Dad has drawn us all a map of exactly which way to go, how fast to drive, etc. He is nervous...BIG TIME! He has done everything but have us do a dry run! I've got my instructions on where to meet Mom, if he can't get to her. She is to drive, now get this, herself to FP and I'm to meet her at K-Mart. The rest of the family have their respective places too! It's whom ever is with her or closest to her. Now the thing is.....can I remember.....I foresee panic mode setting in:) lol!!!!!!
Other than "almost" getting a new heart, everything else seemed to be fine!
Thanks for your love and prayers! Keep them going!
