Fox News Channel's chief national correspondent Ed Henry announced Sunday morning that he would be taking a leave of absence from the network to donate a part of his liver to his sister. Henry's sister, Colleen, has been suffering from a degenerative liver disease. “It is my sincere hope that talking about this journey for myself and Colleen, who has been bravely battling degenerative liver disease over the last few years, will help bring some awareness for the over 113,000 people waiting at this time for lifesaving organs (about 13,000 of whom need a healthy liver)," Henry wrote in an op-ed for Fox News.

Wow! Great for Ed Henry. Such a dangerous operation for him to go through. His sister is blessed that he would give part of his liver for her. Very vascular and bloody organ and not meant to be split up! Hope all goes well for both and God bless

I have always liked Ed Henry. Now I know another reason why. He is a good man. We can give up parts of our liver. He should be fine and with prayers and surgical/medical skill, perhaps his sister will be as well. Typically, the right lobe of the donor's liver is removed. During the surgery about 40 to 60 percent of the donor's liver is removed. The liver begins to regenerate almost immediately. Most of the regeneration occurs in the first two weeks after the surgery, followed by a slower phase of growth over the next year. Donor does have pain for a week or so.

My youngest brother had a double lung transplant and lasted less than 5 years due to multiple issues, including colon cancer. Transplants are a God send but they are very hard on the patient and the family. What my sister in law went through was unbelievable as she cared for him. I also lost a great boss / friend in the 90's before they started doing liver transplants from living donors. I admire what Ed Henry is doing and will send prayers along for Ed and his sister, and their families.

Best wishes. I sure wish our other organs were as nicely self-regenerating. That would be a trick to re-teach the human body.

God bless Ed Henry. Living donations, voluntarily given, can be a Godsend. Not so much other organ transplants, however. Of course many recipients and their families are grateful for them. But there is terrible corruption in the organ transplant industry (and yes, it is an industry). Many frightened relatives of "donor" patients are pressured into allowing their loved ones' organs be "harvested." Often this is done without objective evaluation of the donors' true prospects. For the "transplant team," the successful "harvesting" of the donors' organs is paramount; while the treatment of the donor (behind closed doors, of course) can be quite horrifying.

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Catherine Herridge do the same for her infant son years ago? I seem to recall it was at a hospital in Pittsburgh. She has always been one of my favorite people on Fox. Like other posters I too wish Ed and his sister success in this very serious surgery. He's another of my favorites.

RUSH: Now, one other thing from the past, and that happens to be Nike and Colin Kaepernick. I read a funny piece somewhere over the weekend about the courage of Colin Kaepernick crossing the Delaware, as though he were somehow equivalent to George Washington. Anyway, the point here is that any time the left wants to tell you that they’re not anti-American, you just have to look at this episode here. I go back and forth between the term “un-American” and “anti-American,” and I don’t think we should shy away from anti-American, because, folks, that’s what the Democrat Party is.

Bradley Edwards, a lawyer who represented Jefferey Epstein’s victims, stated in court documents that Trump had barred Epstein from his Mar-A-Lago estate “because Epstein sexually assaulted an underage girl at the club.”Neither Trump nor Mar-A-Lago have confirmed that Epstein had been banned from the club.

Attorney General William Barr said Monday that the Justice Department has a new legal strategy for adding a question about citizenship status onto the 2020 census, according to a new report.“I think over the next day or two you’ll see what approach we’re taking,” Barr told reporters in South Carolina. “And I think it does provide a pathway for getting the question on the census.” The attempt by the Justice and Commerce departments to add the question was struck down by a recent 5-4 Supreme Court decision. The comments from Barr follow Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec announcing that the DOJ was switching up its legal team in the census case.

He has been accused of paying underage girls for massages and sexually abusing them at his mansion in Palm Beach, Fla., and in New York City.

Nike offered a lame excuse that it had removed the shoe from retailers because “it featured an old version of the American flag.” In fact, it featured the American flag that was actually in use in 1776 on the original Fourth of July, and it is named for the pioneering Founding Mother to whom its design is commonly attributed, Betsy Ross.
