My husband got a transplant.  I am still in shock, but the doctor told us this morning that if he hadn't got it then that he wouldn't be here this morning. 
Thanks for your prayers.  Will keep you updated

Everything with his liver is looking good, the kidneys are working fine. I went in day before yesterday and he was sitting up and bright and bushy tailed. still not talking (cause of being on vent for so long) then yesterday was a whole other problem, either reaction to medicine, blood clot or stroke, but he was spaced out and wasn't responding to anything. Last nite he was responding some, so I'm hoping it was maybe some medicine, they are doing a ct and eeg this morning again to check. Keep us in your prayers. I know everything will be ok, I didn't fight for a week and a half to keep him alive to not win this battle too!!!!

That's good news, Okielady! I imagine it will be a bit of a roller coaster for awhile. I have 3 half-sisters in OK and one has a husband who got a liver transplant about 9 years ago. I know the first year or so was a little bumpy, but after that he's been doing well.

Get some rest, but do keep updating us!

Hello everyone

Sorry to take so long getting back with everyone.  Jerry is doing better, we might get to go home on Monday.  He did have a light stroke after the transplant, which knocked him down alot, but he's been in rehab for the last week and is doing better.  Thanks for your prayers.
