Before you do anything….CLICK HERE. 

Check back throughout the day for updates on Derek and Logan. I will continue to receive texts from Liver Central and will post them below. If I get no news for long stretches, I may post something anyway, just so there’s something for you to see when you return.


Final Monday Update, 3:43 PM: Logan’s mom was able to visit Logan, and Derek’s parents were able to visit Derek. Both patients were responsive and looked great! The nurse said that they’d likely wheel Logan next to Derek for a “Hi – Hello” later tonight.

Thanks for reading today…I’ll create a new post for tomorrow if I get more updates.

1:31 PM: Derek has a new liver!!! According to his dad, the doctor says the technical pieces are complete. The next 24 hours are critical to monitor the connections and liver activity. In the words of my trusty source…WOW.

Did someone say juice boxes? Well okay, then.

As I wake on this beautiful morning hours after a full lunar eclipse displayed it’s “blood red” face, I think the world of Logan’s Dad and wish the best for his family and Derek. Logan’s act of love and Derek’s strength is jam packed full of positive faith that empowers us all. I now, truly do believe in angels. Logan, my family’s prayers are sent from Florida. May you both Be Strong this morning.
