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.

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!

Thank you!! Tenth multivisceral transplant anniversary!

Because today marks the tenth anniversary of my multivisceral transplant in which I got a new spleen, liver, pancreas, stomach, small and large intestine, I want to:T: ThankE: EveryN: NameT: ThatE: EncouragedN: Now!!This forum here has been a part of my journey since my transplant, and I feel this is a good day to express my gratitude to everyone here. For me:T: TransplantsR: RecallA: AndN: NameS: SpecialP: PeopleL: LovingA: Another'sN: NeedsT: Thoroughly.This refers not only to the donor and donor family, but also to those people who have helped to make the transplant a lasting success after the surgery. I would not have done as well as I have if I did not have the support of others. This forum is a great reminder too of people coming together to help each other. I am so happy to reach this milestone of ten years and to be able to share it with you. If it had not been for the transplant, I would have died and came close. Thank  you for all that you have done to help…See More

Steve Johnson commented on Keilee-Rae Miller's blog post Sudden onset of High Blood Pressure
"After the transplant my bp slowly went up and has stayed. Metoprolol and lisinopril dosing and that keeps it manageable. Must lose some weight and continue to exercise . Never had bp problems pre transplant but do now."
