I am so overjoyed to read that last Friday Marta's dream of a liver that would help resolve her urea cycle disorder was realized.

Marta is an inspiration for her perseverance through much suffering she has endured becoming the oldest living person with citrullinemia. I can't imagine how much perseverance mom Mary had to summon to help get Marta to this blessed time in her 40s.

While the first year of recovery can be the rockiest of this road. . .I wish it goes as smooth as possible for Marta as she has endured enough. Hope to see her feeling well enough to post soon and to get an adult perspective on this process.

Praying for her to get much stronger every day!
