I want to thank all of you for your prayers for Dean Shafer to get a new heart. I got a phone call from Melissa, Dean’s wife, this morning?informing me that?she received a phone call at 2:33 am informing her that they had found a heart for Dean.?Dean was operated on about 11:30 am today and he is recuperating at Medical City Hospital in Dallas.?Melissa said the surgery went great!? Dean will remain in Dallas for some time?as he?recuperates.?Thanks again and please continue to pray.
UPDATE: I talked to Melissa Shafer tonight and Dean came through surgery like a champ. The heart transplant was very successful and they wanted to thank you for your prayers. Please continue to pray as Dean has a long recuperation ahead of him.
