Update as of 12-21-15. I am doing well and was able to celebrate my 53rd birthday two days ago. Thanks to God and the donor that donated his liver to me back in March 2014.I am still having some liver enzyme and breathing problems but over all i am doing good and able to live a normal life. But i am still not able to work which is causing some financial stress with expensive medicine and insurance. I thank everyone for the prayers and financial help over the last year and a halve. God has blessed me with an amazing support system including each one of you. And i am trusting God to provide for me as i am trying to glorify his name everyday for the MIRACLE he perfomed in my life.

Update as of 8-28-14. Felling a good bit better, I have come a long way since the transplant in March, still have problems with no energy, back pain and dizziness which are all caused by the two drain tubes in my back. Still have a small leak in the bile duct which is healing slowly. Hopefully i will be getting the tubes out in six weeks,but Gods timing is perfect and i am trusting him in everything. I would just like to thank everyone for all the prayers and financial help, it has been a blessing from God by using people such as y'all to help me during this difficult time in my life. This has been a life changing experience for me and I have a whole different outlook on life. I realize the briefness of life and my greatest desire is to please God and to serve others.
