News10NBC has a follow-up to a story about a kidney donation from a stranger, thanks to the power of Facebook.
On Tuesday, Jason Swinehart had his surgery to get a new kidney. His wife, Sherry, says both her husband and the donor, Jaime DiPronio, are doing well and the kidney is a perfect match. Sherry says Jason is up and walking, and Jaime may be able to go home as early as Thursday.
The Swineharts posted their plea for a new kidney on Facebook after months of testing without finding a suitable donor. That's when Jaime saw the post and reached out to the couple.
