On 30th March 2015 I began to struggle to breath as all the water built up in my body and pressed on my lungs. I was then transferred to ICU. On 4th April 2015 the doctor had induced me in a coma, and I went on live support. On 7th April 2015 the hospital received a liver and I went in for surgery. On Friday morning 10th April 2015 the doctors told my wife that I was back on the transplant list because the donor liver also failed. That evening the doctor called my wife from the hospital and said that they received a second liver and I had a second liver transplant on Saturday 11th April 2015. On 13th April 2015 the doctors took the dialysis off and reduced the medication, they slowly started bringing me out of the coma. On 14th April 2015 they took me off the life support for because my lungs and kidneys started to functioned on its own, they stopped the medication and I came out of the coma. In October 2015 I started to work again for 3 days a week and 4th January 2016 I went back to work full time.
