Tuesday Night Week 4

We can't believe that it has been 3 weeks. This place is like a time warp. It seems like we just got here but so much has happened. Unbelievable ride!

We had a "care conference" today. Basically a bunch of doctors and specialists sit down with us and discuss where we are and where we are going. I guess we will do that once a week.

Basically we are at a good point to get a transplant. The scary thing is that this is a very fragile window of opportunity and we are on borrowed time. Everything needs to remain at least constant or improve. We need a heart soon.

Vittoria is pretty awake even though they sedate her quite a bit. She moves a lot on her own and answers the nurses questions. She is getting a bit more feisty with the nurses. If she doesn't want to turn a certain way, she won't. She'll move herself to where she is comfortable. That's the strong little personality we love and miss so much.

All that is happening and with all of the possible obstacles we could face, we are holding up well. Granted, we have our moments, but we feel a peace and a certainty that we are on the right path. I am so grateful for our religious beliefs and all of the support we receive from it. We feel very blessed and feel that God's hand has been at work in this whole process. We continue to pray for a miracle and we pray for the family that will be affected by a loss that will give Vittoria a second chance at life. We believe it is all in God's hands and we are along for ride. Please pray for all of us, and especially, continue to pray for our little princess, Vittoria.


  1. I love you guys. That basically sums it up right there. :D

  2. I love to read your strong testimony. I know that the two of you are barely hanging on at times, but you are both so strong. I admire you both so much. We will continue to pray and pray and pray and you continue to hang in there. We love you so much too. It has been so neat to see how much this family cares for each other. I feel so blessed to be a part of this great group. We love Vittoria, love you and love that moose Jacomo. Our thoughts (girls included) are always with you.
    P.S. No cancer!!!

  3. Vi vogliamo un bene immenso. Fatevi forza e affidiamo al Signore questo momento tanto difficile. Anche noi siamo contenti del dono della fede. Lui tutto può e sicuramente ci chiede di confidare in Lui anche se è difficile riuscire ad affidarsi totalmente. Un forte abbraccio da zio Alberto e sia Tina
