You and Gene are in my prayers too. We live in Canada, and the transplant surgeon we saw in January, said he has done 150 transplants from adult to adult. With 100% success rate after 1yr and I think he said 97& after 5 yrs. All of the info I have read so far supports live adult to adult transpantation. Using (depending on the size and need) approx 1/2 of the liver. The live donors live can grow back in a short period of time and the recipient's 1/2 will grow to full function, pretty much as well. So I am holding out hope for that. Like I said we will know more on Tuesday, I will keep you all posted. In Jan doc had said I may be too heavy (he was very diplomatic, he made me laugh), So I started excersising and eating better, I have lost 20lbs, We had just though we had more time :(
I think the worst part now is just waiting until tuesday argh! I have a tendandcy to want what I want and I want it now. Learning to get better at that. I know that what happens with my sis will be God's will not mine, so I pray for acceptance of His will. But having said that, I/we gotta do the footwork.
Thanks again Barb, I look forward to hearing more from you and others.
Enjoy Life Today, It Is Not A Dress Rehearsal!!!
