Family and friends of James Richardson—”Richie” to his family and friends in England, and “Jim” to his US friends—are raising money for the nonprofit Help Hope Live to fund uninsured medical expenses associated with his upcoming Liver Transplant.

Jim and I will have been married for 29 years this July. In December 2019, he was diagnosed with liver disease. He stopped drinking and worked hard to get better, but his condition deteriorated, regardless. He loves our dogs, family, playing games, working on electronic inventions, programming Linux systems, planning our dream house, and hopes to go camping in our beautiful Northwest mountains. But he needs a new liver to realize those dreams. Please help if you can. Or just reach out and say hello.

Things got a little crazy last week and Himself wasn't discharged until Wednesday. It's been wildly busy in between periods of exhaustion and bouts of good and bad temper on both our parts. We're now in our temporary digs in Seattle and will probably be here the expected 11.5 more weeks.

Our temporary apartment is cute, but a little echo-y due to the hard floors (easier to keep sanitary!) and the minimal furniture (also easier to clean and to move around when your mobility is lousy.) But the neighborhood is delightful and everyone is very nice. Looking forward to each day of improvement.

Richie/Jim will be discharged from the hospital Monday! I'm packing like mad for our temporary move to transitional housing for a while. So much to do! I can't wait for him to be up and about, even if he has to be very careful of his health and stamina for a few months. He's itching to get back into the kitchen! I'm just excited to have him "home" even if home is a temporary apartment. Still a lot of work to do, but we're both so grateful to everyone who's helped us make it this far along the path.
