Teresa is on her way to Minneapolis to receive a pancreas. She is expected to go into surgery around 11PM tonight and the surgery will last approximately 6 hours.
After the surgery, she will be staying in an ICU unit for transplant patients. Due to the fact that her immune system will be quite compromised, she can not accept any flowers, cards or any other gifts at this time. So, please send her good energy and you prayers accordingly.
You can also send Teresa your good wishes via postings on the CaringBridge.org website, or the TransplantCafe.com website or via Teresa's facebook site. (please search for Teresa Menk to locate her entries on each of the websites noted.)
Teresa does have a laptop with her. So, once she is up to it she will be posting responses to the sites that are listed above.
