I am terrible at updating! Here we are, almost 9 months out & Barb is doing amazing!! Her doctors say she is the poster child for her transplant. I can't keep up with her sometimes. I stop & think what a miracle it is that we have the technology so doctors can perform the life changing procedures. Thank you to the donor for giving Barbara the gift of living a healthy life full of deep breaths. Thank you to the doctors that have the knowledge & skill to facilitate & complete the transplant safely & efficiently! Thank you to our family & friends for being so supportive!
