Fontan Time

So, we have received the phone call.

Sam is stopping his warfarin as of now and we will be in Brisbane at the Mater hospital for blood tests and x rays tomorrow morning at 10 am.  He will be fasting from 5am Monday and  it is likely that he may go into surgery for his Fontan Monday afternoon. 

It is all very fast and I have called Don, he is leaving Longreach as I type and driving down with Jack and Gran Watson.  Pray that they travel safely.

There is no one to help with accommodation on the weekend at the Mater hospital so we are using some for the money we have been given to book two night at a motel close the hospital until accommodation can be organised early int he week by the hospital.

We were hoping that our break at the Sunshine Coast would be longer but as long as it all goes well, I just want to do what is best for Sam.

So I wonder if I can ask you a question?  I have this idea for Sam to receive cards in hospital. When we are at home our boys love getting the mail and get so excited when it is for them.  So if you could could you please send a card to Sam and maybe Jack too to the following address. Jack often misses out on receiving things, when he too endures much due to Sam's heart condition.  Imagine how the cards would transform his hospital room.  The cards will be brought down and delivered to them by our family.

Send your words of love and promise to:

PO Box 5905
Maroochydore  BC QLD 4558

Thank you for your love and prayers friends.  The next weeks are not going to be easy but we will triumph with God's blessing and Sam will continue to live and have life in abundance.
