  • Wow! 26 years, that's got to be a record of sorts huh? Do you still stay in contact with U of A? Who was your coordiantor? I gues Dr. Copeland would have done yours eh? He did mine too. I guess he is now at the San Diego program. I sense huge changes at U of A TX program & I'm not so sure I like it...

  • Hey there! I had my TX at U of A too! When was yours? Who was your team? Who is your TX coordinator? I have tons of questions to ask you if you don't mind. Take care, 'Pat'

    26 yrs, amazing! I told Dr Copeland I would be his first 50 yr heart transplant recipient. I hope you are doing very well and still have energy beyond belief.I am doing wonderful, and am starting Culinary school in a few months. (A dream I didn't think I could ever accomplish) Are you going to Las Vegas Oct 7-9 with the transplant group? I would love to see you there.
