Our sweet little buddy Matthew received a very
special and miraculous gift on the 26th of September.....
the gift of a new heart!
This is actually Matthew's second heart transplant,because his first heart was attacked by coronary artery disease. Two days ago Matthew received this 2nd donor heart after months of prayers on his behalf and just in time to save his life! He got his first heart just months before Mariska. Matthew was on the list for 239 days and in the hospital waiting for 164 of those days. Just 3 days before he received this special new heart he had a heart attack and became extremely ill. This is just another testament that prayers are answered and miracles do happen (and sometimes with not much time to spare)!! Our family has prayed day and night for Matthew and his family.
Please pray for Matthew as he recovers from his transplant surgery and that his body will accept this special new heart! And please pray for Matthew's donor family as they have thought to give life at a time of their great loss.
