The heart is in and perfect!!!

The new heart is in and is working well!!! Abby is already off the bypass machine, they didn't even have to shock the heart to get it started.  It seems like it was a perfect fit.....the doctors are very pleased.  The next couple of hours are still critical, but she is doing great.  I am so thankful for the family that donated the heart, I will have them in my prayers for the rest of my life.  I'm so scared for when I have to go see her, they have been warning me about how many tubes and things will be coming out of her.  There might be so many things in her room that I can't stay in there tonight, I won't like that.  I know Abby just wants to get that breathing tube out of her as soon as possible, that was her main concern, but they can't do that until she can breathe on her own...possibly tonight but probably tomorrow.  They did an echo on the new heart and said everything looked just how it's supposed to.   The miracles for the Doman family just continue........we couldn't have done all of this without the support of all of you.  I truly feel that this worked out just as planned, it couldn't have been better.  We are definitely watched over, we are just so blessed.  I am just so grateful..........

  6. I have never met you, and you have no clue who I am, I only know of your story though some of the youth in my ward. I just thought I would let you know how happy I am that miracles are happening for you. What an inspiring story, and an uplifting message. I am praying for Abby and your whole family, and I am so happy things are going so well for everyone.
