Brent’s journey began back in July 2021 when he got Covid. He went to the hospital and was put on a ventilator. During that time his kidneys stopped working so he was put on dialysis.

After some complications he made it through and was moved to a Long term care facility to recover and get off the trach that he had moved to from the ventilator. He was there for a month then moved to a Rehab center. In October he turned yellow and it was discovered that he had a staph infection in his blood. They found that the catheter for dialysis had staph and was pulled but his kidneys started working. His liver was not horrible at the time but not great.
He started to get better than got Influenza A. After that his liver just didn’t recover. He was getting worse fast. He went through all the steps needed to get on the list in two weeks.
He is the first Covid patient to get approved for a liver transplant. Family and friends of Brent Davis are raising money for the nonprofit Help Hope Live to fund uninsured medical expenses associated with transplantation.

Brent came home last Wednesday. He still has a lot of way to go but he is doing so much better. He is on oxygen but we hope we can wean him off of that soon. He got his staples out last Thursday and is progressing great.
