FALSE ALARM!

Well it was close but not close enough! It was a good trial run anyways. I got the call at 9pm saying it was Kathleen fr London Un Hospital saying that they had a potential donor!!!! She asked how I was felling,if I was sick or anything and I'm not so that was good. So she says,ok,we'll get the arrangements for the air ambulance done and will call you with the details. So at 10pm I got a call from the air dispatcher saying that the plane would be here at 12:15 am,I says like in 2 hrs!!!!!! He says yes,and explained where I had to go and everything. So by then I had my shower taken,shaved real fast was running all over oh boy all kinds of emotions we're going through my head. Then one of my brother's & his son and my niece SHANNON we're over at our place. They all came to the airport with us. Then at 12:00 the cell phone rings and it's Kathleen saying the liver was NO GOOD!!!! I was so devastated,sad,why why why????
So we came back home,of course couldn't sleep,so Al & I talked til 2am.

It was good in a way,because if I would of gotten on the flight we would of had to come back home on our own expense which would of been anywhere from $700. to $1000. So Thank God I have ANGELS watching over me. So now I know I am next,it can be anytime or longer.

I'd like to Thank You all for your Thoughts And Prayers!!! I didn't realize all the support I have!
Thanks to my family and friends and all of you blogging buddies!!!! I send you all a HUG back!!

So until next call I will try to keep busy in my new scrap room! My hubby bought me all new storage cabinets and nice ribbon racks at Michael's so the last 2 days I've been reorganizing my room. I found stuff I didn't even know I had!!! Al (DH) says,I don't think you need anymore paper do you???? Lol!!! I love him so much!!!! He is my world,my rock,my best friend!!!!

Hugs,Diane

Oh sweetie, so sorry you had to go through that - but - now you know you're at the top of the list - YAY! You'll be all ready when that call comes - and it will! Have fun in your new craft room - my dh tells me that if I buy any more paper I'm going to come through the ceiling into the living room! C'mon - you can never have too much paper! Just play and create and keep yourself busy till that call comes. Hugs! ~chris

Oooo! Not long now! If you get to London and are in the hospital for a while before transplant, I will come and sit with you and smuggle you in candy and stuff lol! or we can get a leave to go to a restaurant or something for an hour or two. Hubby and I used to do that when I was waiting.......but really that hospital food is not so bad - really love their soup! Okay.....AFTER transplant I will be up for a short visit and if you need ANYTHING please let me know! I can get you anything you need or just me hee hee!! just keep in touch and LOTS of hugs and prayers!!

Bonnie said...

OH WOW, hun, I'm sorry that it wasn't meant to be THIS TIME, but it'll happen. Good to have that practice run anyway, huh?! We'll keep praying. I missed this post of yours and so when I got a comment on my card post from you today, I thought that was weird (and SUCH a quick recovery after a transplant and all!) LOL - so I had to come find out what was going on! *sigh* Love you Diane!! Big hugs!!
