POTD - Small B

POTD - Small B
©2011 Kristin Corlett

My friend Bettyann received a liver transplant three weeks ago.  She always said in our group introductions that she was looking for a small B liver.  After her transplant someone brought her a bee balloon in honor of her small B.  Our dear Bettyann is a short little thing and our friends Mark and Steve thought it might be funny to get down to her size!

Mark has been waiting for a liver transplant at Mayo since December, Bettyann got her transplant three weeks ago (after waiting 7 months) and Steve got a kidney transplant 17 years ago and then  he needed a liver & kidney transplant 9 years ago.   It takes all kinds to make our group work.  These three are just a few of the key members of this years group.  (Thanks you all for letting me feature you as the photo of the day!)

With all the stories you have heard you could write a book! I'm sure no two experiences have been alike, and people must change after such a harrowing experience. Not the surgery so much, but the initial reasons for needing a new organ.

It's both scary and encouraging at the same time.

Beautiful. This brought tears to my eyes. I cannot imagine waiting, how difficult that must be.
