Well this here is a past update that my parents wrote, it was written on January 7th, 2008.

Just a quick note and update. For those who may not have heard, on Sun Jan 6 at 3:45 pm we got the call for Joseph's heart transplant. We arrived at Primary Children's Hospital at about 7:00 pm and they took him into surgery at about 1:00 am Monday morning. All has gone very well. The heart arrived at approximately 5 or 6 am and has been transplanted. He is off the by-pass machine. It is 2:00 pm and they are still waiting for some bleeding to stop before they can close him and move him into the ICU. That should happen relatively soon (that's hospital time, however, not normal time). At this point everything is positive and we expect him to be moved this afternoon.

Thanks for the prayers and concern. We'll write or call again when there is anything more to know. Until then we just get to wait (and wait, and wait, and wait, and ..........).
