Brie Mathews

It is with extreme sadness to announce that Brie Mathews didn't make it through. She passed away June 11th. 
Brie was such a fun and loving person.  I got so tickled when she told a story about one of her cats or her dog, Archie, because Brie got so animated. I always laughed before she even began. Although I didn't know her long, maybe 7 months, I loved her spirit and thirst for books. Brie will be missed greatly in this community.

Brie's Progress

Hello All from Japan...I just got great news via e-mail from Laura Snyder that Brie is doing well after receiving her new liver and heart. Brian, her husband said: Brie is doing well. If she continues to progress over night the plan is to take out the right ventricular assist device and get her closed up. She still has a long road but all of her numbers are good and the heart is beating strong. I can't say enough about the staff here at St. Luke's. This would not been possible anywhere else. From Laura: Great news after several days of very complicated, scary stuff. Keep sending positive energy. So please, however you send your prayers and/or positive energy, let's send as much as we can Brie's way, with a bit going to Brian too. I can't imagine the stress and worry he's been going through. And thanks to Laura for keeping the Brie Updates. Brie, I send you my love. Patti
