My dad found out that he will be put on the transplant list this coming Wednesday.
It doesn't feel real.
We will also look for a live donor match...but as of now, my parents social worker, Joe (assigned to them at Mayo) said that we will wait until next year. Not sure why....but we're gonna go with it. :)
For now, we are enjoying the fact that we can be around my dad. After his transplant he wont be able to be around groups of people for the first 6 months....and than he will have to be very careful after that.
...We have come a long way in the past 6 months. 6 months ago we knew my dad was sick and losing weight and tired all the time...but we didn't know why. Now we do! He's been checked out from head to toe by some of the best doctors around! He is cancer free with a healthy heart but a crappy liver! At least we know what we're up against!
We are still learning as we go!
Thanks for all of your prayers and support!
