That is exactly what I read a while back when you said Mayo had a shorter wait time. I just couldn not understand how that is possible unless there are more donors close to the Mayo clinics. so I stated reading and that is what one article said. That Mayo was using that weren't all that healthy. I guess its how you look at it. I would say most of them were still better then the livers they had. The Dr. told us that Jerry's liver is functioning at about 15%. That was llike cold water to the face.
