He's in !!!!

Shawn was offically listed yesterday morning...this morning the phone rang at just before 9 am and my husband stood still and leaned on the counter and man he didn't have to say a word. The energy coming from him was screaming "THIS IS IT THIS IS IT"
So 24 hrs after being listed here we are. I am typing from the thoracic ICU family waiting room. Shawn has been fully prepped he is waiting down in the OR for the doctor to return with the lungs. We said our "see you later" and our "I love you" and they swept him away from me.
I wanted so badly to burst into tears, to climb up with him, hold him, smell him and feel him just once more but I was good. We had a couple of rougue tears but other than that we were both troopers.

Right after they called we went back upstairs and made sweet monkey love. I'm thankful we did, we felt connected and at peace.

He looks great, he is in great shape and is at peace with this.

His best friend from Florida Mac just flew in yesterday and Shawn kept saying "I hope I don't get called while Mac is here, he'll have a crappy visit" Ha!!! Mac is thrilled to be here for this event and I am too. He is a great friend to Shawn and has been for many years. He is quiet and stable and keeps us all grounded. Just the kind of friend to have around.

I am very grateful that his wonderful wife, Kim is sharing him with us.

Wow my Babe is in having a double lung transplant...

Wow -- that's amazing. Thinking of you both now and hoping for great lungs, competent surgons, and a swift and straightforward recovery. If he ever wants to talk with someone who has been through it -- I'm sure Will would talk with him. Peace,
