Cindy (a.k.a. Duckie) Needs a New Liver!
At 2.5 years old, Cindy loved Sesame Street (especially Ernie’s “Rubber Duckie” song!), her stuffed toys, and her new baby brother. She had a greatly enlarged liver, but no other issues or symptoms. She was thriving. Jump ahead 25 years—Cindy grew up, graduated high school, got married, became a mother, got divorced, got an education, was working in IT, and building a wide circle of friends in the community.

Happy Spring and Happy Birthday to Duckie!
It's been a LONG winter of managing complications and trying to get back on the list. Because of the heart/lung complication, she was made inactive. The docs have been trying since September to find the right balance of fluid to allow the transplant to proceed.
Her next (maybe last, we HOPE and PRAY) is TOMORROW!
If the heart cath is good, she will be relisted, and at the head of the class! Stay tuned for developments!!!
