Most of us don't look forward to any time in the hospital, but imagine living in a hospital room for half a year. Last December doctors told Jessica Danielson, 30, of Duluth she had to move into St. Mary's Hospital Mayo Clinic until she received two lifesaving organ transplants. After more than six months of waiting, she's now received a new heart and liver…Doctors at Mayo Clinic say her lifesaving heart-liver transplant is only seen at the hospital around twice a year, and a six month wait wouldn't be unusual for the rare procedure, because both organs have to come from the same person.
