A San Jose infant was recovering Sunday from what doctors described as the West Coast's first liver transplant from a live donor. Andrew Hiebert, just under 6 months old, was in stable condition at the University of California at San Francisco Medical Center. His aunt, who donated a small piece of her liver to the 14-pound baby, was in stable to good condition, the hospital said. "Even though it's a little painful, I'd do it again," said Melissa Lunetta, a Stockton schoolteacher.

The court held the blood bank could not be held negligent because in 1983, when the transfusion took place, it was doing as much if not more than any other bank in the country to test blood and screen donors.

People go about their business. But for almost everyone who lived through the biggest earthquake in California since 1906, life remains different a year after. The differences can be subtle.
