Here we are at day 93, living in the hospital. The only way I can express how we feel right now is we are playing BINGO for the cover all and we are just waiting for one number before we can yell "BINGO!" Anxious, happy, nervous, just waiting. Well, that's how we feel. We are just waiting for our number to come. We want to yell "BINGO" when they come into our room and say her heart is here.
Lauren is getting weaker and very tired. I can see it in her eyes, she's scared. I cannot take seeing my daughter slipping away from me. All I can do is sit with her, hold her hand and tell her "I'm sending you strength." Lord please help me daughter I can't lose her.
So many people die waiting on the transplant list; national figures say 23 people a day. My gut is telling me are running out of time. Please Dear Lord, give my daughter her second chance at life. I find myself going to the hospital chapel more frequently. I cannot have Lauren see me losing it.
Please pray for my child
In constructing my book, it is formatted in journal form. It takes you from the day we were admitted when Lauren was in heart failure to the day we walked out of the hospital together.
I wrote this book to help other's, just when you think you cannot hang in there any more, their is hope. I belong to quite a few groups, listening to so many people that are on the list, wondering when they will get the call, brings so many memories. All I can say is "keep the faith, your call will come", you need to believe. When you feel you can't go on, please please talk to someone, so important.
Some times talking to a stranger that lived it, can help. I am here

If you would like to read more on our story our book is Strength in a Heartbeat, Diary of a Heart Transplant. On the top os this page is a link to the book. I published it to help other's know they are not alone in this journey.
Sending love Lynne
