What's going on...

Busy week and weekend!  I'll try and give a rundown! ;-)

Well the best news of the weekend was my sweet Cousin Courtney got a LUNG TRANSPLANT!  That's right people, a freaking new set of lungs.  Pretty freaking amazing and awesome.  Court has been battling cystic fibrosis her whole life and has been beating the odds along the way.  She got very sick in June and spent over 90 days in ICU.  I was thankful to be able to visit her while she was there a month or so back.  It was very touch and go for awhile, but she is a fighter and got better and was released home! She had only been out of the hospital for about a week when she got a call saying a donor had been found and she was getting new lungs on Saturday.  After a 6.5 hour surgery, Courtney has new lungs and a new breath on life!  Doctors say the surgery went well, lungs seem to be functioning well and Courtney is doing great!  I am so happy for Courtney and all her family for this answered prayer.  I also am forever grateful for her donor and family, without that person's unselfish gift in the hardest of times, Courtney would still be on a vent and fighting to breathe.  If you are not already signed up to be an organ donor, its never too late to give that gift of life to someone else.  Click here to sign up!
I watched Grey's from Thursday night too and wow, definitely hit close to home.  George's lungs and heart went to a Cystic Fibrosis patient!

Saturday we spent the afternoon at our friends Kathi & Kris's new house for a housewarming/September birthday celebration!  They have a GINORMOUS backyard and Zach had a blast just romping their yard and we had a good time enjoying the yummy food and good company.  Thanks for a lovely afternoon Hallers!  And it was E-day!!  (that would be Esther dog day!)  She celebrated 5 years with us and we are always thankful!  Saturday evening my mom came over to babysit so Matt and I could enjoy a dinner out for his birthday.  We had a delicious dinner at Perry's steakhouse.  YUM-O!  Came home to watch the end of the very exciting U of H vs. Texas Tech football game and a Cougar victory!!!  Great end to a great day!

And today was Matt's birthday!!  My dad was out of town so mom needed someone to go with her to the last Astros game so she could get her fan poster.  Zach and I decided to go with.  He was so good!  We got there way before the game and basically just walked around for 2 hours but I think he liked it.  Once the players were on the field practicing, he was enamored!  Got to be about nap time so we headed home in the 3rd inning but mom at least got her posters! :)  Spent the rest of the day just relaxing at home and enjoying time together chillin.  

All and all a good weekend.  Nothing on the agenda for tomorrow so I am looking forward to really relaxing!  My cousin Lec's wedding is this weekend.  Pending there is still "nothing going on" at Tuesday's doctor's appointment...we will be headed to Dallas on Friday!  Cant wait for the celebration!!  Wish us luck! :)
