We had a setback with the 2nd transplant because of a cancerous mass that was found in Craigs lungs. Craig underwent surgery two weeks ago and was hospitalized for 10 days. He suffered minor complications, but overall is in good health and spirits and is resting at home to regain strength for the 2nd transplant. If all goes as planned he will complete the second transplant in a month to 6weeks. Please continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers as we still have a long road to recovery ahead of us!
