@scottij Scott and Dave, Happy Transplantiversary! I enjoyed reading your self shout out for reaching this important milestone and your written humor. You deserve the recognition and the praise, we all know the road to recovery. My own son had received his heart transplant on April 1 and we look forward to his one year as well. The Phoenix Mayo team have been so wonderful to us. As his caregiver, I have been on the recovery road with him. I once wrote to friends that the new Sarge in charge was probably getting frustrated with the other battle weary soldiers (organs) to catch up, they're getting there! 2020 was the best of years and the worst of years, getting a transplant was the best thing to happen in the worst time. My best wishes to you all in managing this in such a scary time.

@brenwhite Brenda, Many thanks for reaching out. My best to your son and Sarge. I feel so spoiled by my Mayo experience that any other venture in the medical world is filled with frustration born of comparison. (Well at Mayo I would have my test results in two hours and not two weeks. Well at Mayo if I needed to see a specialist it would happen today. Well at Mayo…)

It sounds as if your son has been battling for a long time. I sincerely hope he has turned the corner.
Best always,
s!
Scott Jensen
