Hello sjsharrisburg and welcome to HealingWell. Sorry to hear about
your husband. You're right about
the many hoops to jump through. But it depends on what transplant hospital you're in on how long the wait will be. Some are long and some are short. The thin blood is very scary. If he is being evaluated for transplantation he should have a dietician. Ask the dietician what foods may help thicken the blood. My husband was advised by his hepatoligists to take multivitamins without iron. He also had to take Zinc Sufate, Magnesium, Vitamin A, and a doctor prescribed Calcium. He also took Milk Thistle. Hopes this helps.
