Jeff Bagby, who has contributed greatly to this hobby and community, had a kidney transplant earlier this week. He had been on peritoneal dialysis for years, had done well, but it was beginning to go downhill.
Jeff did well in surgery, but when he was extubated his airway collapsed, he had a respiratory arrest, then a cardiac arrest, and needed to be resuscitated. He recovered well and is now home.
But he has major medical bills to deal with, I understand its already over $20K, and I won't be surprised if it goes higher. A gofundme has been set up for him, www.gofundme/JeffBagby if you would care to make a donation.
