Called for Transplant!!!

28 hours after being fully listed as a liver transplant patient in Atlanta we have been called in for a possible organ!!!

We are now at Children’s Hospital of Atlanta Egleston for Bethany to receive her new liver!

Last night about 7 p.m. we received a call with an offer for a liver for Bethany.  My parents, Bill & Kay Kendrick, had just arrived at our home for a visit from Foley, Alabama.  We had just finished praying for our dinner when the phone rang.  An hour and a half later, we were packed and on the road to Atlanta!

We had no problems driving to Atlanta.  In fact, we made it to Children’s Hospital in two and a half hours thanks to my awesome cousin who did some fabulous repairs to my 2001 Tahoe!  Thanks again Robby for all the work you did on my truck.  It continues to run beautifully!  I never once worried about it ability to get us here safely even though it has over 305000 miles on it.

We are all checked in now.  Everyone is trying to rest while we await Bethany’s new liver.  Originally, we were told that surgery would take place sometime between 3-5 a.m., but we have not had any updates since arriving.  They need to get the organ here and visually inspect it.  Once this happen, and everything checks out, we’ll be good to go.

Thank you everyone for your thoughts, prayers, and wonderful notes of encouragement!  All of us have been so surprised at how fast the word got out and how quick everyone responded.  Keep those prayers a coming!

We love all of you.  You are God’s strength for us through your prayers.

Until we know more, always in His grace,
Taylor, Angela, Bethany, and Jonathan
