The Best News Ever :)

13 Feb

Everyone back home in my little town is celebrating right now because a sweet little 9-year-old girl, Lindsey Bingham, got a call last night telling her that a heart had become available! She has been waiting 239 long days on the transplant list and it is so exciting to FINALLY see an end in sight 🙂

Her older sister, Sierra, had a heart transplant a few years ago and it’s pretty likely that a few of this family’s other three children will have to have heart transplants eventually as well. Lindsey’s call about an available heart is an answer to many, many prayers. This family has the most incredible story.

She goes in for surgery at 4:00 pm today, so please say a quick prayer for Lindsey Bingham, her doctors, and her family (ps: if you check out their blog, don’t watch the video from day 238 at 9:45 pm unless you want to cry. Because it will make you cry. At least it will if you’re 39 weeks pregnant…). And say a quick prayer especially for the family that just lost their child and decided to donate his or her heart so that another family wouldn’t have to experience the same tragedy.

Anyway, I just wanted to throw some good news into the world about the girl who is getting a heart for Valentine’s Day 🙂
