My dad was born in Chicago and practiced in Wilmette Ill. before moving to South Florida. He started his treatments at Jackson Memorial in Miami. After much research and consultation he decided to go to Omaha for his transplant.
I'm not from DC. I retired as a District Fire Chief from Palm Beach County Fire/Rescue in Florida. DC10 refers to my rank and Battalion designation.
I'm sorry to hear about your Mom. The people at UNMC are angels. I know she received great care.
