Thank you for your reply. I found Mayo Clinic connect while still in the hospital last year and have been reading along since.
I have so many wonderful memories that I could share and so many people to thank… Some of the people that standout the most in my mind are the nursing assistants. Not everyone realized their value but for me they were invaluable. One in particular always went out of her way to make me feel great. She would rub my back, or feet… Spend time talking to me and listening to me. This became so important to me because of complications with peritonitis after my transplant. I never met a single person there from the doctors to the people that cleaned my room… Everyone was kind, respectful and caring.
