CWRPS - Smeckles

It feels kind of horrible to be happy that someone just died

Katie, Cheerleading!Sister's little sis, is headed into surgery very soon (within the hour) for a lung transplant (double, I think). She's 15, has CF and has been on the top of the transplant list for a while now. Late last night the hospital called and told them to grab their stuff and get down there. She's just been fed all the anti-rejection meds and she's just about ready to go. The surgery is twelve hours long and the biggest fear now is that her body will reject the lungs.

Do me a favor guys? Cross your fingers for her. Pray, think good thoughts, do whatever it is you when you need that extra bit of hope. I know a few people have probably just lost some respect for me right there but I don't give a flying fuck, I remember when this kid used to refuse to wear anything more than a t-shirt and... You don't get pushed to the top of the transplant list because you're doing fine on your own.
