SHARPSBURG - Sharpsburg Town Councilwoman Denise Troxell was in stable condition Thursday in a Pittsburgh hospital recovering from a double lung transplant she had on Tuesday, according to a family member.
Troxell, 42, of 114 S. Mechanic St., was flown to Pittsburgh University Medical Center on Monday night for the transplant, said Kathie Rigolage, Troxell's sister. Troxell has had a pilot on standby in case a donor became available, she said.
She had been waiting for about two years for a donor.
At the age of 30, a hole was discovered in Troxell's heart that had been there since childhood, she has said. Although the hole was repaired, it had damaged both her lungs.
