A Lil' Boy's Journey to Live….

One year ago .. right about this time .. We got a call from CHOP. This was our 4th call that they had an offer for Riley. After the 3rd Dry Run you begin to doubt that it will ever go through, but after a few hours we headed over the bridge to CHOP. This time we packed less in preparation to once again be sent home. However when we walked through the doors at CHOP on March 4th 2013 .. It would be different. It would be 127 days before we walked Riley back out those doors. Riley went to the OR at 11:15pm on March 4th and came out of the OR at 6:15am on March 5th with his Gift of Life .. a set of ‘Angel’ Heart and Lungs! Words could never express our Gratitude to the family who decided to donate their child’s organs. I still look forward to the day I can hand over a stethoscope and let Riley’s donors parents listen to their child’s heart beating Strong .. Living on through our Riley .. ♡♥
