A donor liver was being flown in yes-
terday with the hope that it would be
*cmpatible for a 17-year-old girl
comatose with a rare liver disease, a
'University Hospitals spokesperson said.
Tiffany Culy, a Saline High School
honors student, was in critical condi-
Son yesterday and breathing with the
help of a respirator.
University Medical Center
spokesperson Mike Harrison said the
donor liver was expected to arrive at
Willow Run Airport in Ypsilanti about
8 p.m.
More tests will be performed on the
donor o-gan'after it arrives; gand if it is
cbmpatible, surgeons were to performi
'"he transplant operation last night,
arrison said.
"It was biopsied off-site and the
results look pretty promising," he said.
Harrison said he did not know where
the donor organ originated.
h Jessica Culy, Tiffany's 20-year-old
sister, said the family also was not
told where the donor organ was locat-
ed but was encouraged by news of the
find.
"It has been biopsied unlike the other
,revious livers" she said. "We found
out that it's healthy. Her chances are
good that her body won't reject this
liver''
a Jessica said her sister's condition had

remained stable yesterday, three days
after doctors said the teen-ager had just
24 hours to live.
"She's still holding her own," Jessica
said. "This is a miracle that she's fought
this long."
On Monday night, one potential
donor liver turned out to be unusable,
she said. The teen-ager's father,
David Culy, said three other potential
donor livers had proven incompati-
ble.
"Her condition is critical, and her
chances are slim without a transplant,"
said Dr. Jeffrey Punch, attending sur-
geon. "But we don't know how long
she has."
Tiffany's liver failed over the span of
just one week.
She was hospitalized last week
and diagnosed Saturday with
Wilson's disease. That rare recessive
genetic disorder damages the liver
by impeding its ability to excrete
copper.

Shared-responsibili bill
clears state Senate, 37-0

LANSING (AP) - Children of
divorced parents could find themselves
splitting their time more evenly
between their parents under a bill that
assumes that shared parental responsi-
bility should be ordered.
The bill, similar to one that passed
the Senate in the last session but failed
to clear the House, passed the Senate
yesterday. Sponsored by Sen. Joel
Gougeon (R-Bay City), the bill was
sent to the House on a 37-0 vote.
"Fathers who were merely paying
child support to the custodial wife were

becoming disconnected with their chil-
dren," Gougeon said, citing studies on
the issue. "Research shows that both par-
ents' (involvement) is best for the child."
The measure would create a legal
presumption of shared parental respon-
sibility and provide for parenting plans
in child custody cases.
Shared parental responsibility would
mean a court order requiring parents to
share the decision-making authority
and responsibility for the child and that
the child would have to live with each
parent for a certain length of time.

It would not require that the child live
with each parent for an equal length of
time, however.
Now, joint custody can be requested
by either parent and the judge must co-
sider it. Under the bill, the court wqujl
have to order shared responsibiji y
unless it determined such an arrang
ment was not in the child's best interest(
However, the parents could agree to a
parenting plan other than shared
responsibility, and the court would have
to order it unless it found it not in the
child's best interests.
