We just got the news that they have added my dad to the list, which was a huge surprise to us since he still needs to have one more test done. His pager should arrive any day now.
The coordinator did tell us that it isn't very likely he will ever get paged while he is at home. All of the transplant receipiants here have been in the hospital before they received a liver transplant, so basically he will end up getting much sicker then he is right now. If he does get hospitalized then we have to let them know ASAP.
The whole assessment process has been a challenge. We weren't sure what to expect, and it seems to really vary from hospital to hospital, but overall things have gone well for my dad. We're dealing with the Toronto General Hospital, and they have been great.
