Done and Doing Well


All news tonight has been great news. We are excited that everything has gone as well as it did. Madison is now back in here room in the PICU and is doing well. We have had an incredible amount of support tonight that has mad a difficult situation so much easier to handle. The last week has been an indescribable emotional roller coaster. I think it will take a little time to unwind and gather our thoughts so that we can share with all of you the details of this wonderful night of miracles.

Thanks again for all of your support, I stopped counting but we had well over 150 emails, comments and text messages showing your support and concern for Miss Madison. We also had over 30 people stop by the hospital. It is all of you that have made it possible for Michelle and I to make it through all of this. We know that the road ahead will be a bumpy one so we now ask for your prayers that Madison will continue to have the strength to overcome the obstacle in front of her, she is a strong and amazing girl.

We also ask for your prayers to be with the wonderful family that had the strength to give Madison this gift of life.

I just heard the amazing news!! I am beyond thrilled for you. Reading your posts is like reading my own when Daxton recieved his miracle. There are no words to describe your emotions. Never have I experianced such a vast contrast of emotions. The transplant team IS amazing!! I love them with all my heart. It is more than a job to them it is their life. I love them!! I would love to come visit you guys. I know that it is crazy after and you want to keep all the germs away from her so let me know if you are having visitors. My heart is so happy for you guys. We will be praying very hard for things to continue smoothly and for your precious donor family, such a beautiful selfless act of service to someone that they do not even know. They will be blessed. Sending lots and lots of love and prayers. Hilary Cook

Michelle and Mark (and Cooper and Maddie), I have been thinking about you guys SO much these past few days. It is truly a miracle. Bless Maddie's heart.

I wish I were there to come and visit, but I am so glad that my parents were able to come and for all of the phone calls from my mom to keep me updated. I have had my phone close by me for the past few days :)

Your updates are wonderful on the blog too. You are all in my thoughts and prayers, especially little Maddie. I pray that she continues to thrive and that you will all know how much we love and support you.

Take care, and I can't wait to hear more!!!

Love you guys!!!

I have not checked my blogs in a while and didnt' know you had a heart! That is INCREDIBLE! I am so glad things went well! I am amazed with how fast that happened! I agree with whoever said, you wouldn't want anyone to go thru it, but all the love, support and tender mercies are something you want to share with everyone! I can't wait to hear her progress and pray for quick recovery for her.
