The call!!!!!!!

I got the call!!!

Gahhhhhhh *losing my mind*!!

I can't tell you the fun story of what happened when I actually got the call as I'm writing this ahead of time in anticipation but I'm sure whatever it was, it will be exciting and I'll fill everyone in once I recover. Most likely the story will be that I was almost asleep when I got called and we leisurely called a cab to take us to the hospital. Or perhaps I will be stuck on a broken down subway car outside union station and the only way to get out will be to run down the tunnel like they do in adventure movies (except hopefully the subway car won't blow up behind us as we dramatically jump out of the way in slow motion). Either way, I'm sure it will happen a way that I could have never imagined. 

 Before you jump on a plane, there is always a possibility it may not happen so stay tuned.

Because I got the call that means that a person out there somewhere has died and a family and community has lost a loved one. Thank you person for allowing your death to mean a new start for so many other people. You are making a huge difference in someone elses life and there is not enough thanks in the world for me to give to you.
 

Edit note from Amy: Alley goes for prep tomorrow at 5 am. She is getting transferred to Toronto General at 5 am and than has a day of meds and testing, with the surgery sometime tomorrow evening. I will keep everyone posted with more news when we know!!

I was so Happy to hear the news this AM.
I looked heavenward and said Thank-You with tears rolling down my cheek for All of you Watson's and extended family.
As someone above said, "Bless the Donor family"
