STOP THE PRESSES!

March 25, 2009, 5:17 PM Eastern Standard Time:

Received word today that friend, fellow ACHA member, and Heart Warrior Anthony is getting a Heart Transplant!

The original message was that it would occur “later today” but I’m not sure when they originally found out (It could be going on right now, I just don’t know the time frame.)  I’ll update if I learn more.

Had an email when I returned tonight that surgery was scheduled to begin at 7:00 PM Eastern.  I have no idea how long the surgery should take, but will update again if I hear more.

Surgery pushed back to 9:00 PM. So hopefully they are in the operating room right now! Hang Tough, Anthony!

March 26, 2009, 12:04 AM Eastern Standard Time:

Anthony went into surgery around 11:00 PM. The operation is expected to last 6 to 8 hours, and as of 11:30 PM the donor heart had not arrived.

I’m off to bed, so I’ll update in the morning.

There was a quick update about ten miniutes after my 12:04 update last night, basically repeating that he was in the Operating Room but the donor heart hadn’t arrived yet. Nothing since then.

Anthony is out of surgey and things are looking good!

    Praying all is well with Anthony. May God bless the donor’s family as well.
