Huber gets new chance with second kidney transplant
When Rhonda Huber got her first one over 31 years ago, the average length span of a transplanted kidney was five-to-seven years.
Kind of like the "Energizer Bunny," Huber's replacement kidney kept going and going and going, but she came to realize it would eventually wear down. The Ellsworth resident, who's presently recovering from a second such transplant, wasn't looking forward to repeating the experience. Although still an ordeal, she found the process was easier this time.
