This Is It!!

No, I'm not talking about that Michael Jackson movie. Today is the day that my sweet sorority sister Emily is getting her new lungs!!

Emily got the call yesterday while on a mini-vacation in South Carolina, the first time she has taken a little trip since learning that she would need a transplant (go figure!!). In order to make it to the hospital on time, she sped back to Atlanta with a police escort all the way to the hospital (sirens and all!!). They made it just in time and she is getting her new pipes as I sit here and write this.

I wanted to thank you all for your prayers and donations as her family goes through this emotional time. Pray that Emily's body receives the lungs well and for the doctor's wisdom during the operation. Also, please say a prayer for the family of the donor who has given my friend the gift of life. Who would have thought that someone else's tragedy would be our miracle. We can't be more thankful.

If you are interested in Emily's story and more updates, please visit her page HERE. Her husband Matt is posting updates as they come.

I know that this came way sooner than expected and that her family will have a long road ahead of them. So, if you would like to donate, please go HERE. Every little bit helps.

Thanks for all the love and support. You guys rock!!

Much love!! xx
