Linda Krabbe,a 64 year old wife, mother of 3 ,and grandmother of 9, has had a long battle with diabetes, which has unfortunately developed the additional diagnosis of liver disease. Her liver disease was diagnosed in 2011 and had progressively worsened. On January 31, 2018, Linda was placed on the liver transplant list with UW Madison. Linda suffers from other long time chronic illnesses such as heart disease requiring stent placement and a pacemaker, seizure disorder, cutaneous sarcoidosis and hypertension requiring medications and ongoing treatments. Liver disease is an incurable and fatal disease unless transplanted. Through the grace of God, Linda was offered a new liver on 6/21/18 and accepted. Linda is currently at UW Madison Hospital and is expected to have a long stay. She developed kidney failure shortly before transplant, which is now requiring dialysis. Linda also had a large bleed behind her left eye ,2 days after surgery, which has left her without vision in that eye. Her diabetes has been hard to control and requires continuous intravenous insulin. Nothing is more important to Linda than family. Her whole life has been centered around her husband, brother, sisters, children and now grandchildren. Her husband of 45 years, Dave, share an unconditional love for each other and have spread that to all who know them. They are charter members of Christ the King Lutheran Church in Combined Locks and even though Linda is not well enough to attend services, her faith prevails.
Linda was forced to medically retire about 2 years ago. Along with decreased income and high medical costs, her financial strain has been great. Her husband Dave is retired also. Linda and Dave traveled to various local doctors, and to Madison regularly which sometimes required an overnight stay due the toll travel takes on Linda. The costs of travel, medications, doctor appointments, and long term stay for Dave in Madison is hard to bear. He is not willing to leave her side, which is another testament to their love. Please consider helping Linda and Dave to maintain their hospital stay and post-surgical treatments, so we can continue to save "Linda's Life"
