Hubby passed his engineering exam! Woo hoo! Now I think the next step is to submit the report of what he did during his training time (4 years from graduation) and he'll likely get called in for an interview in Vancouver.

I'm so excited! He had to wait 8 weeks to find out, so I bet the holidays will be more relaxed for him having that good news. :)

I'm pretty sure I've filled out the organ donor registration form. We don't have seal for our licenses here, but I think you fill out the form and send it in so your name is on the list. Should double-check that soon.

Sounds like the heart is a perfect match and the timing was amazing - the tubes going to the mechanical heart were clogged and would have sent an infection to the heart that could kill quickly. The only remedy for the clogged tubes is a transplant!

Wish I could hop on a plane or make the drive to Edmonton to see Lydia and her parents. I'm so glad we have iVillage and Facebook to keep in touch!

Praying for strength for little Lydia, that her body will accept this gift!

That's terrific news! Does it mean you would move again?

And a different praise item: one of the (iVillage) Christian Sisters Playgroup mamas, the only other Canadian I know on that board, has been waiting since October (middle of the month, I think) in an Edmonton hospital for her daughter to get a heart transplant. They've had to use a mechanical heart, but at 5 local time this morning a new heart arrived and she's in surgery now! PTL! Praying for Lydia, her parents and siblings, the doctors and nurses and also for the family who gave the heart and lost their own child.

Thanks, I'm still really excited! Bet it will come up in conversation at the office Christmas party tonight.

The letter arrived in the mail yesterday and we hand-delivered it to the office so he could see it in print. :) I'm so glad he doesn't have to go through all that studying again!
