Tue, Feb 11 3:07pm · Liver transplant support group in Transplants

I am a 20 month post liver transplant and want to offer support to anyone awaiting any sort of transplant. Until you are there, few can grasp the long road that is to be traveled. My journey started in February of 2017, was transplanted in June 2018 from a deceased donor. I would be honored to offer great hope to anyone that responds and share stories pre and post transplant. Be strong.. Somehow I messed this up, I am not Lissa, I am Dwight.

We attended the picnic and are in the picture. My husband had a liver transplant June 2018. He is on the right kneeling with the green shirt and white hat. I'm next to him with white shirt and on each side of me are our 2 daughters. Two years in a row we have gone and had a great time meeting up with others in this picture who were also staying at the transplant house when we were.

Jan 6, 2019 · Multifocal Adenocarcinoma of the lung-continual recurrences in Lung Cancer

My husband and I have stayed at the Kahler Grand and also Kahler Inns and Suites. The last few times when staying at the Kahler Inn we were very unhappy with the cleanliness of our rooms. We are not picky people but after the last visit we complained. It is convenient though when going to numerous appts at the clinic. Since my husband had a liver transplant in June of 2018 we now stay at The Gift of Life Transplant House which is a wonderful place to stay.
