BISMARCK A second kidney transplant for Sister Thomas Welder, the president of the University of Mary, was put on hold Thursday, school officials said.

No reason was given. A statement from the school said Welder "expresses her deepest gratitude for prayers on her behalf and for her donor as well," and said no other information would be released.

Welder was to undergo the transplant in Rochester, Minn.

She had a kidney transplant in 2001 to treat a condition that caused chronic kidney failure. Doctors said an infection led to the need for a new transplant.

Welder has been undergoing dialysis three times a week.
