心肝宝贝。

下面这个美国男子的礼物有点特别:他把一小块肝脏移植给了妈妈。






63岁的美国犹他州女子Gwen Finlayson是四个孩子的母亲。在1991年她被诊断患有自身免疫性肝炎。医生警告说,不出几年她就需要进行肝脏移植手术,但她却撑了二十多年。



最近她的健康每况愈下,到了不得不进行肝移植的程度。



Finlayson went on the national transplant list last year, but the odds of her getting an organ looked pretty slim.



去年Finlayson 进入全国移植名单,但是获得移植器官的机会渺茫。

就在这时,她和儿子配型成功。



Her son, Brandon, was a match and volunteered to be a donor.



他的儿子Brandon和她配型成功,并且愿意成为一名捐献者。

Brandon自己也有五个孩子要养活,考虑到这一点妈妈Gwen一开始不支持儿子捐出他的肝脏。



"She pretty much shut us down and said, 'No, it's not a possibility. I don't even want to talk about it,' " Brandon, 37, said. "It took days to get her to finally even think about the idea. A lot of convincing."



37岁的Brandon说:“一开始她果断地拒绝了。她说‘不,这不可能。我甚至都不愿意提这件事。’” “我花了好几天才最终说服她。”

接下来,医生制作了Brandon 肝脏的3D打印模型,为移植做准备。

"Normally we take the right lobe and take about 60 percent of the healthy liver from the donor to give to the recipient," said Dr. Manuel Rodriguez-Davalos in a statement. 



Manuel Rodriguez-Davalos医生在一份声明中说:“通常我们移植供体的肝脏右叶,从供体身上取下约60%的健康肝脏移植到接受者(病人)身上。” 



Doctors said that Gwen and Brandon's livers can regenerate and should grow to about 90 percent of normal size within months.



医生说,Gwen和Brandon的肝脏可以再生,肝脏的体积可以在几个月内恢复到正常大小的90%左右。

现在母子二人均恢复良好。Gwen说她现在每天步行五英里,一家人对未来充满信心。



"I look forward with joy and optimism and try to figure out what are we going to do next."



“我怀着喜悦和乐观的心情展望未来,憧憬着今后可以做点什么。”



"I'm not sure I have the words to describe how I feel about my son. I am grateful that he is the kind of man who would do something like that," she said. "That he would risk his life for another human being -- didn't have to be his mother -- it would have been anybody. To me, that is the definition of a hero."



“我无法用语言形容我对儿子的感情。我很感激,他是这么一个人,为了别人可以用自己的生命冒险——不管那人是他的母亲还是别人。对我而言,这就是英雄的定义。



而Brandon却开玩笑说,在今后的几年内他不用为母亲节礼物发愁了。
