Kidney transplant successful at UCLA
Spoke with Ginny Cowenhoven, Ginger Moorhouse's daughter, who tells me Ginger and her husband John sailed through the kidney transplant at UCLA Medical Center and that everything seems to have gone well. Ginger, publisher of The Californian and my boss, donated one of her kidneys to her husband Thursday. Ginny said her mother was fully alert later in the day and even "feisty" with the nurses as she asked to have her bed pulled alongside John's. The nurses finally relented. There has been an outpouring of support for the couple since Ginger began writing "The Kidney Chronicles" as seen here.
