To know Craig is to LOVE Craig! 1-2-3 ❤❤❤
Craig’s loved ones are raising money to help pay for the medications he will be taking after receiving the transplant – a lifelong commitment to him taking care of his health to prevent rejection or malfunction of the transplant organ, some of them will be temporary, while others he will take for the rest of his life. These anti-rejection medications are very expensive even with insurance.

Craig has been home since being discharged from rehab on Jan. 11th. He is doing well but unfortunately came down with a cough and is struggling to get rid of it. It has slowed down his recovery progress since his energy level is low but took him back to Duke hospital to see his doctors last week just to confirm it is nothing more than a cough. He has pleural effusion, a build up of extra fluid between his lungs and the chest wall. It is currently being treated by over the counter cough medicines. He continues to give it his all with physical therapy and is using a rollator walker to get around. Because of the acute kidney injury that occurred during the transplant he attends Dialysis three times a week. His transplant doctor and kidney doctor is optimistic that it is a temporary condition but only time can tell. His new liver is functioning well and he is on a renal diet until his kidneys recover. It has been a long journey but we are hopeful with each new day he becomes stronger and can enjoy a quality life. We are so very thankful for those who have donated to his campaign to help us with his financial expenses with his prescriptions and deductibles. As the doctor bills pour in even with the having insurance it is overwhelming. His out of pocket expenses continue and we are planning on having some fundraiser events to help out with our never ending medical bills. Liver transplants are life -saving but very expensive. Being his wife for almost 43 years this Feb. 14th I am his primary caretaker and Craig is the love of my life and had to take fmla leave from my job. He is my first priority to help him recover and once he can take care of himself and drive again I can return to work. Until then any assistance of any kind you can give it is a huge help and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Please continue to pray for my husband Craig and that he can recover from all his complications since his transplant surgery on Thanksgiving Day. Event Details coming soon. Thank you again and spread the word to help out Craig.

Mr. Landau, I met your beautiful daughter Rachel thru my daughter Kendra in Las Vegas. She is spunky and somehow I believe it's from Dad! Hang in there as there will be up and down days. Embrace the good days and scoff off the bad. Embrace the love ones as thru their strength you will also gain strength. Much speedy recovery wishes.
