Every Christmas is a gift for Hill family after transplant

-A A +A
By Donald Richie

For the past three years, Christmas has had a special meaning to one Harrison County family.

Christmas to the Hill family - Jimmy ?Killer? Hill, his wife Patty, daughters Christin Hill Barnes and Amy Hill Ballard, son Jim Ed Hill and all his grandchildren get the gift of time every year.

Two years ago, on Dec. 9 and 10, 2005, Killer Hill had a heart transplant at the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center.

He was off the ventilator later that day.

?He was up and doing everything on his own on the 10th,? said Christin.
