Sometimes life gets in the way,,

We have had an interesting weekend. It started with a call from My Daughter Missie. She and her Fiancee live in NC. They had gotten a call that they had the double transplant that Gordon needed and had been waiting on for so long. So Gordon was whisked off to the Hospital for his New kidney and pancreas. After 7 or so hours in surgery he is doing just great with it. Still in ICU but getting stronger every minute. And although this will mean a lifetime of anti-rejection drugs it will mean a longer life. As he was truly on the edge of life. We are thankful to the Donor and their family.

Gunner and I have just been running the fields for the past few days and not getting lost.


  1. That sounds like wonderful news!! We hope that everything goes great! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  2. Wow...that is WONDERFUL news. I wish him a speedy recovery. Organ donors are the best!
