May God's hand guide the surgeon. I'm assuming the heart/lung transplant is under way, as I understand when a match becomes available time is of the essence. Prayers are being given for Darren and the family.

Thomas, That AWESOME news for Darren and the fact that some one has given him a chance to live. I'll say a prayer for that someones family. This morning I had to go to Ludington and on the way stopped by a creek on the back roads. I don't know why but Darren came to mind so I started to pray. When I seen your post on Darrens progress I got the chills and it just confirms the power of prayer. I'll keep them comming, for Darren has along road ahead of him. Take care my friend. steve

You all are great and I know I can count on you to hang in there with us.

After they had done Darren's first full-body scrub in preparation, they did one final test of the lungs from the donor and it was determined at that time that the donor lungs were not of a high enough quality to proceed.

So no transplant was done. This of course was a letdown to all, esp. Darren, but everyone was also thankful that he had not been given a problem set of new lungs.

I spent all day with them and was able to learn that the exact problem area with his current lungs are the arteries that feed the lungs. Our prayers are for healing of those arteries so that he can accept only a heart transplant. They will look at this again in the next week or so and I will keep you posted.

You know how much it means to have prayer in times like this, we can't thank you enough. Thomas

I can only imagine the anticipation when you rec'd the news of a lung available, and how excited you all must have been to have been so close to having the transplant, but what a "blessing" it was that the doctors did one final test. There's a reason for everything that happens, and we'll pray that it's because a healing of Darren's arteries is already underway, and he will only have to accept a heart transplant.

My continued prayers.....

Today was another eventful day. It began with a heart catheratization this morning to determine if the arteries to the lungs were improving.

While my sister (Darren's mom) was on the phone telling me about the preliminary results, everyone was rushed from the room as Darren's heart began to fail, specifically the left ventricle was shutting down. (it's just worn out from overwork).

They did a lot of work as well as give him a $10,000 injection and they were able to stabilize him.

Tonigh the chief department surgeon told them they he thought they could see their way to doing a heart-only transplant (PTL) if they can find the "right" heart; one with an extra-strong muscle on the side that pumps to the lungs.

I told my brother-in-law that God knows exactly what Darren needs and can supply just such a heart.

Thank you all for your continued prayers.

Thomas

My prayers go out to all involved.


Also please remember in prayer the person who's life ended to make the transplant possible.
