Do you know that Meld scores that qualify for TP vary from region to region? Or they did when Mike had his. Here in Florida the average was 22 at his time. In the Northeast and Westcoast Meld may need to be much higher. It depends on the volume of cadaver livers that enter the system. With the NE and W being more progressive areas, they have helmut laws that cut down seriously on the number of healthy folks who die in wrecks...here in Florida the bikers have successfully resisted a helmut law, the weather is great for riding all year, and voila...donor livers. Medical tourism is popular here. Folks will get to the high teens and then move to a rental apartment near a transplant center and do the evaluation here and wait their turn. Now this may have changed some in recent years, but I don't think so.
Continue to send best thoughts to both of you.
