Hi, everyone and thank you for visiting our Miguel Transplant Central information site. The current info is:

Who: Renee Miguel (little sister) & Barry Miguel (big brother)

What: Kidney transplant

When: Thursday, July 9th, ‘09

Why: He needs one, I have two

Where: Mt. Sinai Hospital, NY, NY (Yes, that’s Upper East Side)

Various details: Our mother Ruth and I will leave for NY on Monday, 7/6, Barry and I have an appt at Sinai on Tues, then surgery on Thursday. We will each be in hospital for 3 to 5 days and then continue our recovery back at Barry & David’s city home. I will be staying in NY for two weeks post surgery and then returning to San Francisco/Santa Rosa.

Ruth & David will be our “in house” Home Healthcare Team, and our wonderful sister Melanie’s two eldest daughters, Naomi & Ivria, have very generously offered to be our Errand-running and Take-out dinner Specialists. It may also be necessary to talk David and Melanie into a batch or two of their equally amazing chocolate chip cookies, widely known for their holistic healing powers.

Our dad, Ron, will be posting daily health status reports while we’re at Sinai, after which we’ll be posting on our own from home.

Again, thanks for visiting our website – Feel free to post comments, wishes, inquiries – We’ll be in touch soon, closer to the date of surgery.

Renee & Barry Miguel
