"Dr's. changed their minds and instead of ultrasound they did CT."
Actually, this is a good thing, as a CT will show more of what's going on than an ultrasound. Yes, the nodule could be growing, though that's a small amount and possibly could have been measured incorrectly. I went from no tumor to a cancerous tumor taking up most of the rt. lobe of my liver in a year's time. And I'm still here. From what you've said, it sounds as though they are taking Will's case more seriously. Rather than being scared, be glad that he is getting tests, etc., to give the docs a better look at his problem. It's doubtful that Will is just going to keel over this week or this month. That must have been a draining trip and day at Shands. Make sure both of you get lots of rest this weekend! And thanks for checking in with the results of your trip!
"They don't even have his labs yet and Dr. sends us to a Transplant financial lady but, in same breath say's he's not at meld yet."
I nearly forgot to comment on this. There are some things that can be done in advance, and the financial review is one of them. Believe me, once testing for transplant is done and a match is found--things will go unbelievably fast! I got pre-registered last week for my upcoming surgery on the 14th. On the 12th, I will go to the hospital for an EKG, chest x-ray, and a pre-surgery consult. That way, when I go for surgery on the 14th, I can be prepped and poised to go right in without delay.
BTW, it's spelled varices. You were close. ;)
