1/14/14 Update from Tami :
Alyssa and Tina (JM: Mom) didn’t end up leaving until about 1 this morning. The transplant Dr and a team from Houston flew here last night and had to evaluate Alyssa and ensure she wouldn’t vomit on the trip.
They arrived safely in Houston about 4:30 this morning and will be doing testing on Alyssa all day to ensure she is a transplant candidate. Please pray that everything is a go and she is a candidate.
The communication will be less now because unfortunately they don’t allow cell phones in their picu. I will update when I know more.
I, along with my “team” (as Tina calls it;)) am planning a benefit/ fundraiser for Alyssa and the family to help with anything they need ( ie. meds, plane tickets for Jeff and Alyssa’s siblings to go visit, Dr bills, and any other day to day costs.) Any volunteers will be greatly appreciated. I will let everyone know more as the information becomes available.
Please everyone, I believe the prayers have worked to get Alyssa this far so continue to pray now that she is a candidate and that her new heart/ lungs become available very soon.
Please continue to pray for Alyssa.
