PATTY RECEIVED A SMALL BOWEL TRANSPLANT!!!!
After waiting for almost one year her prayers have been answered and on 2/3/17 she was called and received her new small bowel. The recovery journey has just begun. The balance of antirejection meds and daily life will be challenging. The cost alone for these medications can run in to the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Over the past year Patty and her family have lost everything from their home and pets to being away from family and friends. Her entire support system was in CT. Her health needs took a front seat. Now that she in on the other side of the transplant the future is brighter, but still unknown. Where they will land on their feet after they can leave Pittsburgh is unknown. Their dream was to always be in SC. This is still the dream however getting there will be much more difficult after these events that changed her and her families lives forever. The physical and emotional toll has been catastrophic.
