Prayer Request for my Cyster Sara


My CF Cyster Sara is currently in surgery - She received the call last night around 8:45 pm! Her and her amazing Hubby arrived at UCLA about 2:40 am and they finally separated the two of them around 5:30 am. Mike got the call from the scrub nurse that the lungs had arrived, they looked good, and they were proceeding to start the actual surgery - it was 7 am.

Mike was updated that the surgery is going very well - she went under smoothly, everything is running as expected, and they are working on getting the lungs in.The surgery will probably go til 2 pm. 

Please pray that the surgery goes well and that My Cyster will have a speedy recovery! She has been waiting over 2 years and 30 days for these new lungs I am so happy that she finally got her miracle. Please also pray for the donor family as they are dealing with their loss. I am so thankful that they made the decision to donate and to give the gift of life.

Sara is beautiful, Somer... And she's in my prayers...

I hope her surgery is wildly successful... I hope her recovery is amazing... I hope her journey is as wonderful as mine has been...

And thank-you for thinking of her donor family Somer... I hope they're comforted in the knowledge that they've saved other lives -- I hope they're comforted with the thought that they've saved someone as precious as your Cyster Sara!!!

Love,

Steve
