Saturday, July 16th "The Call"
THEY HAD A HEART for Dick! We were flown to Minneapolis where we were transported immediately to the hospital. The transplant surgery may be sometime after 9:00 AM this morning; it is almost 7 AM and at this point I don't know if the donated heart has arrived. The nurse just told me that the surgery could take anywhere from six to sixteen hours. Dick is really sleepy and very ready but I, on the other hand, am a little in shock, I'm sure reality will set in soon. I will keep you posted as things progress. It will be a very long day, so once again I call upon you all to pray for Dick.
