I am approaching the year anniversary of my liver transplant. It took two months for me to get well enough to go home. Previous to my transplant on May 4th 2011 I had broken my back and then my hip. Still had stitches in hip when I went in for the transplant. 2011 started with a long stay at Mayo, from Jan. to the end of Jun I was in my home for only about three weeks total. I still get tired easy and still have a low platelet count. BUT thanks to my exemplary transplant surgeons and staff I am alive!
