Now that we're home we get to play Lego, play in the snow, and just enjoy time together! Sara's appointments have been twice a week or once a week, and after her next Transplant Clinic appointment that should change to once every two weeks! There has been no sign of rejection in all her tests, and she's doing so well with getting poked for blood work each week. She's off & being weaned off a couple meds, as her heart continues to improve. In 6 months Sara will have another cardiac catherization & biopsy to check for rejection again. We have meds that are on a schedule, but other then that it's pretty normal around here! She's managed to stay healthy with everyone around her getting sick! We're praising God for his protection! We were so blessed by friends & family cleaning our place & preparing it for our arrival! It's wonderful to be home even if I have to face the mountains of laundry, dishes, and Joel going away for work! Hopefully his job mulching will go well, and the time will pass by quickly so he's home again soon! 

We're so happy to share that our friend Austin got a heart transplant in December! We're praying that he will recover quickly and be home soon! Please keep praying for our friends - Joel, Hope, Muskaan, Harrison, Caleb, Isabelle, Isabel F, Lukas, Grayson, Jace, Sheldon, Alexis, Hilda, Melissa, Morgan, Marwa, Safa, Makenna, Kaiya, Cohen and Precious. Most of these friends have been through incredibly tough times- it's a roller-coaster ride of ups and downs and what seems to be endless waiting. Pray for clear answers, and comforted hearts. Jesus cares for you. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path." Proverbs 3:5-6
