My name is Rylee Najera and my sister is my connection to Donate Life. From a very young age I was in the hospital visiting my sister Ricki often. I never knew why at the time, but I knew she was different from me because she was always sick and tired and she just never felt good. The word Hepatitis C was always being said, and at the time, I didn’t understand how serious it was. It wasn’t until late 2009 when my sister was placed on the waiting list at USC; my sister needed a new liver, and with the stories about the waiting list on mind, I felt like it was going to be a long and dreadful path. On July 13th, 2010, my sister received her first liver from a living donor, and family member. Unfortunately, the cirrhosis developed again and it landed my sister back in the hospital for months. My sister got sicker until July 19th, 2011 we got the call that she would be receiving a Liver that night from a deceased donor. It is because of these two wonderful people that my sister is alive today and can live a better life. My sister was given a second chance, and for that we couldn’t be more grateful.
High concentration of Azithromycin in infected tissues is also caused by the fact that phagocytes and macrophages transport it to the site of infection and release in the area of inflammation. Azithromycin is prescribed in case of illness or injury at the time.
