    Member of the Month: Eric Lund

    Eric Lund received a double-arm transplant at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore this past November. His recovery is expected to take a couple of years. He should be able to start working on stretching his elbows this week. His next milestone is in three weeks when he can start exercising and will not have to wear braces and slings all the time.


    Eric said the surgery went easier than expected, except the week immediately following surgery. He had to spend it in a hot room ranging from 85-95 degrees. Coming from Michigan in November, 95 degrees was uncomfortable.


    Like anywhere on the east coast, Baltimore has been very cold. Normal temperatures for this time are usually in the 40s. Eric is enjoying the food outside of the hospital. He used to live in the neighboring county in the 90’s and is familiar with the area.


    The things Eric misses the most about Ludington are the people and sleeping in his own bed. He should be home sometime this spring and is excited to get back to our community and see everyone.
