Transplant

MrsCSS

Well, my father is finally going to start the process to have a liver transplant. He is still waiting for a packet in the mail with information about the process. My parents will be flying to Phoenix to see a specialist and give a bone marrow sample. My uncle will be doing the same as well, he has volunteered to be a living donar. I am nervous, excited, scared, and worried but it is a wonderful thing. It was nice to hear hope in my mothers voice about it all. If anyone has any words of wisdom of what to expect these next few months it would be greatly appreciated. I know that there are alot of factors and that alot of cases are different, but just someone to talk to about this who knows about it would be really helpful. Thank you, -MrsCSS
