Who is that baby?

As I approach my "lift off" back to Boston I cannot believe how much time we have spent there. I never thought it would come to Todd and I switching off and on, trying to keep home life, work life, and hospital life in a city that takes a 3 hour plane ride to get to ... I never thought it would need to be this long.
We are so blessed to have such good friends, great family and strangers that have helped us along our way. I mean it from the bottom of my heart, we absolutely couldn't have done it without every single one of you. The generosity of gift cards, the well wishes, the comments letting us know you are with us, airfare and prayers, have been such a blessing. You have truly lightened our load in a time when it was needed. Very soon we will be able to repay you with a very happy, healthy, four chamber-heart boy and parents that are humbled by the whole experience. Soon Tucker will be running, going to school and climbing up on his kitchen set like old times...and I will be sitting back watching with tears in my eyes....amazed yet again at how much this boy has blessed our lives.
I thank you.....

I am still praying and pulling for you guys. I know you will be so glad to have your little boy back home and better than ever. God is just making sure it will go smoothly when you do get to go. Love you and appreciate you keeping us informed. I know Karen will be glad to be able to take you both back home. Love, Mary Ellen

I have been out of touch and out of town, but while I was gone I got an email saying Boston will take Jaxsons case. I'm so excited, but now that its really happening I'm terrified. Boston is clear accross the country from us, and if something happens to Jax while I'm there and so far away from home it would be very hard. I really trust Boston though, maybe you can tell me a little about your experience there?
