He got a heart!

We found out about 5:30 this evening, as Cody was driving home from Salt Lake where he was working today, that our nephew Parker is getting a heart transplant. The donor is in California, and one doctor will do the ENTIRE surgery--he is flying to California to remove the heart from the donor, then will personally take it back to Utah and put it in Parker. We don't know a lot still, and there is still a lot that will happen. This is an exciting, intense, and scary procedure. I'll keep the blog fairly up-to-date as we learn more.

Our thoughts and prayers are with both Parker and his family and the family that is giving him this amazing gift.
