Dear friends, loved ones and prayer warrior. It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I wanted to thank everyone for the positive thoughts and prayer on my behalf. This journey is gonna be a long one for Jadie and I. Tomorrow I will be having a right heart Cath and be the ICU for 3 or 4 days at Sharp Memorial here in San Diego. This procedure is part of the heart transplant protocol to see what drugs will work best for me during the transplant And hopefully help me feel better until that day arrives. I have had a rough couple of weeks dealing with fatigue and just not feeling well in general. My transplant team tells me it because my heart is just having to work to hard and just giving out. I know that our God is not done with me yet and has a plan for me. My doctors here are awesome and taking really good care of me and not taking any risk with my condition. We trust them 100%, but we are still asking for prayers and the continued guidance from God. We also ask that you remember the family and loved ones of the beautiful person who will donate their heart so I can live. Jadie and I will forever be in their debt for the sacrifice made for life. It will probably be a while until I post again, but Jadie will keep everyone updated. Please say a special prayer for my beautiful wife Jadie. This has not been easy for her and will get harder before it gets any easier. She is my rock and always has positive words and thoughts for me. Again thank you all and know that I love each one of you. Praise God for what He is doing in my life.
