My nephew Jason aka "Little Man" was taken up to Children's hospital last night to get his new heart last night (5-6-12) Im sending this email to all of you and Im asking everyone to keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers. He is 6 years old and has been in and out of the hospital since he was born. He is the best little boy. He is always smiling and happy despite going thru surgeries and illnesses his entire life. I would also like to ask you to pray for the family who so unselfishly donated their child's heart so that another child could live. I thank you in advance for your prayers.

wonderful and without the donors undo-able so special prayers to them for peace in the choices they made and peace with the passing of their loved one. Will pray all goes well for your nephew and your family as well.

Bittersweet. He's getting a heart, but someone just lost a child.
Praying for both families.

 Just talked to Little Man’s mommy. She said he is out of surgery and doing well. They couldn’t close his chest cuz everytime they tried his pressures would drop. So they are leaving it open for a day or two. This is common and should resolve itself in a day or 2. They will then take him back to surgery and close his chest. All in all he is doing amazingly well. Jen wanted me to thank all of  you for your thoughts and prayers and said please keep them coming as the next few days will be critical ones.
