Alright so the "Spokespeople" bio thing hasn't been updated on the Games website. Who do you think will be coming? I'm hoping for Steve Jobs and a FREE iPad or iPod--HA! :-)

Seriously, who do you think is coming? Larry Hagman and Chris Klug are pretty much a given ( :-) ) but who else do you think will make an appearance? Natalie Cole?

"Tx for reply, Wendy! How often do you run Allomapping blood test? Allomapping is not yet the gold standard suggested/used by NewYork-Presbyterian, nor is it available where we're at now, so it's not really an option for us. My key…"

"Wow I had to only to the biopsy for 6 months then they did the allomapping test. They now can tell if I have rejection thru blood work. Those are so uncomfortable! Prayers do her!! My transplant was in Nov 2013. Methodist Hospital in Houston Texas."

Anyway, transplant was at the highly acclaimed Columbia/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital - to which we moved for waiting for the heart, transplant, and follow-up care. Now, 6 months after transplant, we moved back to our home.
