I was born July 29th, 1957 with BA. There was not alot of knowledge about this disease so, my chances of survival were slim to non. After two major surgeries by the time I was a year old, I seem to be fine until I hit my 40's. My bile duct tore to shreds and I was totally septic and spent 3mnths in the hospital. Was told that I had the ugliest liver they ever saw, and they prayed that I would be 80 before I would need a transplant. I did need a tx and got my gift in June 2005. I have been constantly told that I am a miracle child who was not supposed to live, my doctors just kept trying, because doing nothing was not an option.
