 One of the heart transplant recipients  wrote me a note, I want to share with you what he said,   "He is on the way to his second chance. All of us transplants feel very blessed to have received the ultimate gift."

Think about it.  
My friend Susan prayed that God's answers to all the prayers would be really obvious.  I just told Dede, "look at how loud God is shouting."  When I look at Dick and see how smoothly he went through surgery, how smoothly he is going through recovery,the perfect donor's young healthy heart, and how his body is accepting it as its' own,  there is no other conclusion!  Not only has God heard all the prayers, but He is answering each and every one of them.  Your voice has mattered, and Dick is the LIVING PROOF.  Now Dick still has a way to go, but I am believing that he has nothing short of a divine 
How I look at the transplant recipient's quote is that "a second chance to live" is the ultimate gift.  

A special surprise, this afternoon Dick was alert, talking and off the breathing tube.  Allen and Denise Kjesbo were in town and came by to offer their love, support and prayers.
