We have been very pleased with Madeline's care at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Many have told us that they are the best at what they do, and there is definite evidence to that point. On December 7, 2016, UPMC performed their 2000th lung transplant -- the first hospital in the nation to meet that landmark. Madeline's transplant surgeon reports that she is also one of the oldest scleroderma patients they have transplanted -- one of the main reasons we are here.
This morning Madeline is much more alert than she has been all week. We'll update today's progress later in the day.
As often as possible, we'll try to update this page to let you know how Madeline is doing and where she is in her fight for new lungs. Visit often!
