Dear Family and Friends, Thank you so much for your love, prayers, and financial support over the last few months. We celebrated my three month post-transplant anniversary on February 27, 2016. I have no signs of rejection. We did have a minor setback a few weeks ago with an infection due to immune system suppression drugs. I was hospitalized for five days and now I'm home with a Picc line and strong antibiotics for blood poisoning. This treatment seems to be working well. I am even able to grocery shop and drive a little. We are so very thankful to you for "being there" and we love you all dearly. Randy and Diana
