Although I am still very excited about the research into TEVG that I posted back in October, I realize that it will have no application for Turnip. Earlier this week, we met with a local surgeon to discuss Turnip's continued care. When I brought up this research, the surgeon reminded me that Turnip will need a vessel with an attached valve. The research about which I was so excited only extends to vessels, not valves. So, so much for that great plan.
We're meeting with a surgeon in a neighboring city early next month. Maybe he'll have some alternative ideas.
