"It Went Well"

Stacey emailed me that the procedure went well. She's going to send me a blog post later but I just wanted to pass that on.
So many complete strangers around the world worked on this from the anonymous donor in Europe to the airline pilots, doctors, nurses, and everyone else. At least we can thank the ones here in Portland but there are a lot of people involved with this who we'll never even know. That's inspirational - humanity at its best. And the suspenseful part wondering if these people would come through, is now done. They delivered.
The procedure took from 12:45a.m. to 5a.m., but the cells that James needs to survive are now in his body, and though the danger is far from over, that's a giant step forward in this entire ordeal.
