Ashley and Riley Hess - Get well card and Riley drew Lauren a get well caterpillar! Thanks, Riley!!
Stella d'egidio - A nice card and enrollment of Lauren into the Sacred Heart Spiritual Society where Lauren will have prayers said for her at daily mass.
Marybeth Swift - Beautiful card, donation, and prayer book called Healed of Cancer.
Lindsey Durkos - Lovely floral basket.
Jolene Ricchiuti - A gorgeous floral arrangement that looks like a wedding bouquet. She said she wanted it to look that way on purpose for Wo.
Jacqui and her Dad have worked really hard to get Lauren prayed over by a priest from Illinois that has witnessed many miracles after praying for these people. They managed to get him to pray for Lauren over the phone. He was a delightful man who was 97 years old. We all gathered around Lauren (including her nurse, Kim) and prayed. It was beautiful. Thanks Jacqui and Jeff.
Amit (the transplant fellow) and his entourage were in bright and early this morning. They usually round at about 6:00 am. Some days I am sound asleep and don't even hear them!! He said that Wo's chest x-ray looked better, which is encouraging. Mark just showed up a few minutes ago. Kristen was in around 6:00 am before work. We will probably wait for rounds and then go eat breakfast. We are hoping for a good day or at least uneventful day and looking forward to the MARS machine arriving. Wo has one of our favorite nurses again today. Kim is such a joy and keeps us in stitches with her funny stories. We all love her like a family member. Tiffany is working with her today and the funny stories have already begun!! You might think it is weird that we laugh when Lauren is laying in the room fighting for her life, but she would not want us crying every day all day and laughter really is the best medicine.
Have a great day today and thanks for the support, prayers, and love.
