Katrina was 11 days heavily sedated after her heart transplant. The surgery and process took a toll on her body. She was on continuous kidney dialysis, due to kidney failure. Even when moved out of ICU, dialysis was needed. The day before a permanent port was put in her kidneys slowly woke up.

Being heavily sedated she lost her ability to walk. She was in rehab to get her muscles working again. Even at home, there is Physical Therapy to gain mobility, and she is still working on walking. She is also struggling with a large number of meds and working with doctors to balance them so she can maintain a healthy and productive life.
