NEW BRITAIN - Even though he's done his time for a 1989 robbery conviction and a 2005 drug possession case, Andrzej Nowakowski is imprisoned again to await deportation to a country he doesn't know.
It may literally kill his wife.
Vivian Nowakowski, 43, of High Street is suffering from end-stage renal failure, meaning her kidneys are no longer working to maintain the right chemical balance in her body.
She needs an organ transplant, but isn't allowed to have her kidney transplant operation at Yale-New Haven Hospital without someone to take care of her after surgery.
