Lois’s Story

For several years, Lois has quietly suffered with NASH advanced liver disease, but more recently, she has been fighting the biggest hardship of her life. Living with advanced liver disease was not easy, with major symptoms including constant nausea, cognitive struggles, and persistent swelling. After extensive evaluations by Emory University Hospital, where she’d been seen at the transplant clinic for a couple years prior, she was enlisted for liver transplantation in the summer of 2017.

One week in, Mom is doing really well at the rehab facility. She is tolerating the three hours of therapy each day and is making some progress in her mobility. She’s primarily mobile by wheelchair for now, but they’re working with her to get strong enough to use a walker.

Three months, two surgeries, and a new liver later, Mom is officially OUT of the hospital!! On Tuesday evening of this week, she was transported to the Emory Rehabilitation Center to begin building her strength. She will be there for two weeks, and while she’s there, she’ll have three hours of therapy a day. The staff expects her to make some big progress on her mobility; right now, she is self-mobile by wheelchair, but they’re working with her to be able to stand and walk with a walker until she is fully back on her feet.
