Gavin, Loved your article!! I would usually be very adamant it that works, but I don't want to tempt fate. I have a little "scaniety" as Jim calls it, so I will wait till Friday and post it works!!
I would love to send you an email I recieved   from Wayne Parson (an orginal member), in it he writes how Dr. Chapman went to Dublin Ireland to teach this procedure.
Please email me (jrdunnagan@gmail.com) if you would like to read it. Thanks for posting transplant news, it needs to an option and ruled out by doctors who believe it is!
