Coming Saturday, May 2:
Tuesday, 3/18: Tommy is doing really well! He is awake and the breathing tube is
out. His color is great and he's back to his goofy ways.
Tommy has received his new liver, St. Patrick's day, 3/17 !!!
The surgeon said the liver was in great shape which made the procedure smoother than expected. He has been moved to the ICU. He is currently sedated, but they will remove his breathing tube tomorrow and bring him out of sedation to see how he does.
Older surgery/health updates will be archived here.
Every Wednesday is Liver and Gizzards at KFC in Iowa City. They will be donating 10% to the Tommy Lang Liver Transplant Fund. Turn out in droves and help out!
That's 10% of ALL Wednesday sales, not just Liver and Gizzards! Your secret addiction to KFC mashed potatoes (and everything else) helps too!
The CR Gazzette published an article about Tommy's fundraiser, and the community's response to his drive for a liver transplant. It's a good read!
