Steve Jobs Gets a Liver Transplant

Best wishes to Steve Jobs for the success of his (still rumored) liver transplant two months ago. From what I've read, his need for a transplant was uncommon and due to complications or a condition caused by pancreatic cancer.

Whenever someone of Jobs' celebrity has transplant surgery, a buzz is created that I hope makes people stop and think about transplants and the urgent need for organ donors. Akin to turning lemons into lemonade, if you will.

P.S. - I've taken a break from my blog because, well, the task of being a transplant patient with ongoing challenges (physical, financial, emotional, you name it) has been exhausting. I have rested and now I'm back in the saddle.
