SHOULD ALCOHOLICS
GET LIVER
TRANSPLANTS?
The failure of footballer George
Best to refrain from drinking
alcohol despite a life-saving
liver transplant just 12 months
ago has prompted questions
about the merits of offering
transplant surgery to alcoholics.
Some say it is a waste of a
precious and scarce resource,
but others say there is no
reason why people suffering
from such a debilitating disease
should be discriminated against.
Every day is Thanksgiving for Tim and
Heather Tickal and their family.
The Mason City couple’s 7-year-old
daughter, Bailey, who was born with
kidney disease and was given only a
50-50 chance of survival, received a
kidney transplant five years ago today
from her grandmother, Helen Bunting
of Rudd.
Bailey, who couldn’t walk without a walker and was behind on talking before
the transplant, now is enjoying being a first-grader at Hoover Elementary
School and playing on the monkey bars.
The outgoing little girl also has caught up on her speaking skills — and then
some.
“She’s quite the miracle,” Bunting said.
The family likes to joke that Bailey got her “orneryness” from her
grandmother’s kidney.
