Add me to the "dumpees." It was not just the liver disease and cancer, but all the hip surgeries, hernia repairs, etc. I'm sure I wasn't a ton of fun. We weren't married, but had been in a monogomous relationship for 13 years--until he "met someone." BTW, that didn't last long at all. He and I are still friends, but rarely see each other.
Joelene, please let us know the results of your scans.

I just want bake you all cookies and knock your spouses or S/O along side of the head. I guess there are alot of people out there that are weak! I don';t have long because I have a grand son here but wanted to tell you Vanderbilt called my husbands son today and told him they are dropping their live donor program! Nice isn't it. That was after he spent a lot of time with them on the phone and he drove there last week with his wife. Took all day meeting with the surgeon, social workers and tons of lap test. They did tell him his lab work was good. Someone made the call that they don't want to do live donor transplants. You think they could have told him two weeks ago. I had reservations about going there anyway. They do a lot of transplants but have had very little experience with live transplants. I called our case worker with the Insurance company and there are a lot of hospitals we could go to and be covered. WE will have to have some family meetings I guess. Just wanted to fill you all in and say Hi. Jerry is not feeling good today. He didn't even seem to react to the news. NOt sure why. Maybe he is kind of glad it turned out this way. NOt sure. I will keep you all posted. Hang in there Joelene. Is there something they can do for those high numbers. I don't know much about Hep C. Keep me posted.
JoAnn, that's the pits! As Candlelight said, surely they knew before today that their future use of live transplants was in doubt. Anyway, I'm glad you have alternatives.
Candlelight, my SO wasn't cheating while we were actively dating and being intimate. He started seeing less and less of me, and I had a feeling he was seeing someone else. I think when he was ready to take it to the next level with this woman he had met, he felt obliged to break it off with me. He said he "wanted to be honest" with me. Since he was my best friend for so long, I still consider him a friend. He's not seeing anyone now and has been calling me. However, it will never be like it once was.
Now, in your case...if I were in your shoes...I would just hang up on the man when he called. But that's me. You don't deserve to be treated like that.
Thanks for the thoughts, John.
