And now with the news!

After much running around and having various poking, prodding, testing, phone calls, faxes, e-mails interspersed with waiting and some extreme bodily functions while preparing for said testing... or recovering from......................................

On Thursday afternoon I was OFFICIALLY LISTED with Scripps at a MELD score of 21.

AND, I am their highest B (blood type)

Which means....all things staying the same..(which they don't) If a B liver becomes available today and it FITS....extremely important...It's MINE!!!

Now, as I have explained before THE LIST is a constantly changing thing....They don't check you off in a 1,2,3, fashion. But it does mean that hopefully soon they will be calling me to tell me it is my turn...........

I am also still listed at Loma Linda but they have many more folks who need their livers first in the LA, One Legacy area than in San Diego.

I have to thank my coordinators and Dr's ......all of them in helping me make this process very easy and quick. They all are great, wonderful and efficiant in thier jobs and in making this happen.

So, that is some of what I have been up to these last 3 weeks......

That is wonderful! Congratulations, you'll continue to be in our prayers. Keep us updated! (and I'm debating on the kindle, it would have been great when I was always going to appointments!)
