Erik Morganroth, far left, and his family at a recent costume party.

Mr. Morganroth was hospital-
ized in December after a rare in-
cident in which a common flu
virus attacked his heart. Doctors
in Ann Arbor placed the Troy res-
ident on a machine that pumped
his blood while they waited for
a donor heart. Mr. Morganroth
more than doubled the amount
of time any patient has survived
on the machine.
On Thursday evening, Jan. 26,
doctors informed the family
a heart had been found, but
there were no guarantees. By Fri-
day, Mr. Morganroth had a new
heart.
"My husband had a feeling a
heart, would be found," Mrs. Mor-
ganroth said. "I tried to stop
thinking about when it would
happen. My concentration was
on keeping Erik healthy."
While Mr. Morganroth is do-
ing well, he is not out of the woods
yet. A heart recipient faces a high
risk of infection and rejection five
to 14 days after surgery.
Mr. Morganroth received his
heart from a 32-year-old metro
Detroit woman. The cause of
death was not revealed to protect
the family's identity.

their dreams with us."
Tom Beyersdorf, executive di-
rector of Gift of Life, said the
woman's family did not mention
the Morganroth case when they
decided to donate the heart.
The Morganroth family said
they found strength from the out-
pouring of support they received
from friends and strangers.
Since the family began holding
press conferences to increase pub-
lic awareness of the need for or-
gan donations, they have been
inundated with support.
A 12-year-old boy sent a letter
saying he "felt bad about Erik"
and included $15 to help pay for
a transplant.
"Examples like this are touch-
ing," Mrs. Morganroth said. "You
realize just how much good is out
there. What's most exciting is the
hundreds of people who wrote
and said they have become
donors."
Mrs. Morganroth, whose
schedule as an attorney has been
replaced with days and nights in
the hospital, now spends about
four hours every day responding L_ \/
to letters. She has well over 1,000
to write. ❑
