Last Friday my Uncle "Doobie" got called at 3:00am that he needed to get to the hospital as soon as possible because his new liver was being flown in from another country (they didn't say which country).
Uncle Doobie has been on the organ donors waiting list for a long time and after as few false alarms, it was finally real. We were all super excited for him yet very nervous because having a Liver Transplant is such a serious surgery. After a 12 hour surgery he seemed to be doing well, this weekend he was released from ICU and taken to his own room where he watched the Lakers game and even took a walk around the hospital.
Today my cousin called and said he was having some swelling in his arms, which is concerning because it could lead to blood clots and that is never a good thing, but we will all continue to stay positive and pray for his full recovery!
Love you Uncle Doobie "Hey Now"
