Anthony Update

Anthony’s heart is looking good…. it’s his kidneys that are misbehaving. In the words of one of the nurses, his kidneys have “gone to sleep” and they have put him on dialysis, hopefully temporarily. Also, his o2 numbers aren’t as high as they would like, so right now he is on a BIPAP. The staff says this is (sometimes) normal, that the kidneys can shut down for a while after a transplant, but his family is understandably worried. All the other signs are good – he’s much more alert than he has been.

Hopefully all this is just a bump in the road. Hang in there, Anthony!
