Transplant Completed!! On December 21 We got the call! The surgery started at 2:30am on December 22 and I was back in the room by 9am. A few hours later, they had me on my feet! Amazing!! I will add more later but as of now, all is well, we are approaching the magical Day 21 when they will remove the staples and send us HOME!!! What a wonderful year 2012 will be! We still need funding for the 4-month return visit, which will be several days here at Mayo in Jacksonville and medications. Thank you to all of our friends and family who have helped us go into recovery with a minimum amount of stress.
Love, Sue and Evens Colas
