Courtney Kidd returned to her parents’ home in Bradley, Ill., last week for the first time in nearly six months and exactly three months after a double-organ transplant at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester.
The homecoming was made without the benefit of much rest. Eager to return home, Courtney, 32, didn’t get much sleep.
“It was like being a little kid and waiting for Santa the night before Christmas,” she said.
Courtney arrived at Mayo Clinic in early October and, on Nov. 24, underwent a heart and liver transplant.
