Thank-you for the Birthday wishes.  I have been in the hospital the past two weeks.  My transplanted lungs are doing great, however I seem to keep going into Atrial Fibrillation and had a bleed around my heart.  Got a helo ride to my Transplant Center and I am now back on my feet.  Still need to deal with the Atrial Fibrillation, but first need to get the body settled down some.  Thank again for the birthday wishes, spent in the hospital, but spent still with hope.

Gary,

I'm so  sorry  to hear  about this.    Sending  prayers  for a  full  recovery.

As  Burnie  mentioned,  we  were  wondering  about you  since you're  never away  for  too  long!

Prayers  for you  and  Wanda!

Take  care!

graft vs host from a liver transplant

Hello, my name is Ralph N Johnson I just join this wonderful group of concern,loving,family and friends. My gift to life was on 7-12-14 liver transplant at Univ of Penn hospital Phila. In August I contacted (GVHD) from the liver transplant.August & September was spent fighting daily for my very life. Currently undetectable, My Dr. told me that I would be lucky to find as many people that it takes to play a hand of bridge that survived this disease. Can anyone point me in the direction to find the other three. Thank you.. See More
