From Mike

So 24 hours after surgery and all is well. Kamryn is doing nothing outside of what they anticipated might happen. Her lung is now responding well and her oxygen levels are good. She is slowly coming out of the heavy sedation and is responding to touch and voices. Her attitude is intact which is GREAT to see. What a ride! I have had a hard time sorting my feelings today. I am still very amazed by what has happened and see it as nothing short of a miracle. A miracle that I got to witness right before my eyes. I didn't realize how much stress I was carrying until I heard the words "the heart is in and pumping" and felt an immediate sense of relief. The hopes and fears had been sorted and what I had hoped for was a reality. What I had feared no longer mattered. I believe it will take a long time before I can really work through my emotions and feelings about all of this. It all has happened so fast and much of yesterday is a blurr but the clarity of witnessing a loving God touching a tiny life is a vivid picture that I will have forever.
