Former Orioles executive, daughter recovering from kidney transplant surgery at Johns Hopkins

HealthJohns Hopkins Hospital

Lindsey Duquette and her father, former Orioles executive Jim Duquette, have come through their transplant surgeries and are recovering at Johns Hopkins Hospital, a spokesperson for the hospital said Monday.

The father gave his daughter a kidney after her organs were destroyed by a rare disease called focal segmental glomerulosclerosis.

Both are listed in fair condition, the hospital said. 

There is no cure for the disease that is diagnosed in only 5,400 people a year. And the usually rambunctious Lindsey had become bedridden and lethargic in the family's Sparks home.
