Joseph is doing great. He had a Heart Transplant early Monday morning and has since then been in recovery. Everything has gone wonderfully. His body and the heart are doing great together. Today his Family went up and visited him and he looks great, better then ever. Color has returned to his face and he is awake enough to hold a decent conversation. He has enough tubes and wires coming out of his body to give Darth Vader a decent competition. He has been recieving various gifts from people which are greatly appreciated, it makes his day to know others are thinking of him. We are hoping he is moved out of ICU to another room soon, it will make the visits a bit less chaotic. Joseph is doing well, we thank you all for your prayers.

Hi, it's Sister Lew. You have been in our prayers. Sean tells all of his friends how strong and amazing you are. You are and always have been an inspiration to me, even when you and Adam got a little bit rowdy. Tell Heather and Nathaniel that I said Hi! and listen to your mother!

Hi Joseph,

It's Sister Lew again. I am so proud of you. When you get better I need to come and see you or your whole family can come and have dinner with us. If you are able, I will challenge you to a game of Dance, Dance, Revolution (DDR)! Do you think you can keep up with me. (I'll let you use any of your brothers or sisters as a substitute and I will count as if it were you). The prize is still to be determined. Any suggestions?

I can't let sister Lew get all the comments in. Joe I'm so excited for you for this heart transplant. You and your family have been in our thoughts and prayers for quite some time now. However I can't imagine you with a heart that allows you to be any more rambunctious than you were before. I hope you and your family are doing well.
