The Story of Lani
Five-year-old Lani still takes seven medicines with her breakfast every morning. "She's very good about it," says her father David. Lani is alive today because of her father David, in more than one way; when she was one year old she received part of her father's liver in a liver-transplant operation. Lani was born with a liver illness._________(46) Doctors advised that a transplant was the only way in which she would live.
The operation lasted 12 hours and needed two teams, one for the father and one for the daughter.________(47) In these cases, the donor's Liver grows to normal size in about eight weeks, and the child's liver becomes smaller.
Lani spent three weeks in hospital after the operation, Because the receiver's body tries to reject the new organ, the patient has to be given special drugs._________(48)
Although David left hospital after 10 days, he didn't return to work until after three months. In order to reach the liver, the doctors have to cut through the stomach wall, which is strong and full of muscle. It therefore takes a long time to recover after this operation.___________(49)
So far, only 16 of these liver-transplant operations have been carried out in Britain.___________(50) Doctors say, "If possible, we prefer to take a liver from a dead donor, usually a parent."
