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!

Niece in Need of Housing in Los Angeles

My niece has been approved for a kidney transplant at Cedar's Sinai in LA but hasn't found an affordable place to stay for the three months following the transplant. Does anyone know of a place or have a suggestion on how to find a place. Her social worker did give her a list of hotels/motels but they are out of her price range. She is doing some fund raising to help cover expenses. Any ideas would be appreciated.Thank you.See More

Liver Transplants

This is a group for all people who have had liver transplants. Feel free to say how long you have been a recipient and what medication you are on. Some doctors hope to have their patients off all medications, any thoughts?
