A.J. Nye Sent Back to Omaha Hospital

SOUTH TOLEDO -- Double transplant patient A.J. Nye had to go back to the University of Nebraska in Omaha today after a minor setback.  Here's his mother's e-mailed update from April 6.

"Hello everyone, A.J. is doing and looking VERY WELL, BUT his liver numbers are elevated. I have to make this quick.  We just found out that we have to go back to Omaha. A.J. has a liver biopsy Thurs. (tomorrow) with Dr. Wendy Grant. So, we are driving there through the day today."

A.J. just came home last weekend after spending 2 1/2 months in Omaha after doctors transplanted his liver and small bowel.  It was the second time in his short life to have that happen.  He was born with a birth defect that caused his intestines to develop outside his body.
