I hesitate to even say it, but it looks like we are good for Boston tomorrow.  I just got a call from the transplant cardiologist there (yes, the actual doctor!), and she said they are ready for Keegan.  The rest of the day will be crazy here.  In addition to packing and getting the house ready, it was Audrey's first day of Mother's Day Out, and Keegan will be at the hospital downtown all afternoon for last minute infusions, nebulizer treatments, dressing changes, transport team meetings, etc.

Oh, not to mention that Keegan's fever has started again.  Just in time.  Please just join us in prayer for Keegan's safety on this trip now that he will not be feeling well in the air.  Gray will fly with Keegan on the hospital's fixed wing plane, and I will be flying out commercially tomorrow morning.  Very early mornings for all, so tonight will be the last time I get to see Audrey for awhile.  Gray will be staying in Boston about one week and then will be back to work and taking care of Ladybug.  While we are anxious to find answers for Keegan, we are also disappointed in having to separate our family and leave our home.  We are confident this is a step in the right direction.  Just one we take with great caution and trepidation.

And perhaps when we return, we will see these adorable siblings back together once again with big smiles and both feeling well and happy.

God is in control. He is your pilot. You and Gray are the BEST PARENTS Keegan could have. Never question that, and Audrey will be waiting for your return. Praying for the answers you seek, and the health Keegan so truly deserves. Always here and just a call, text, email away.

"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you."

Love and prayers,
