I AM NOW ON THE "TRANSPLANT ACTIVE LIST."
I have been so worried about not being placed on the list over the past 6 weeks.
This is because of the suspicion that I had a "turbulent flow"
descending in the left aorta in the pulmonary area, by "some" of the doctors.
That would have made my chances of being placed on the list, virtually nil.
You can imagine just how happy I was to learn this.
It happened thus.
Our friend Kate had messaged me , just asking me how I was feeling. I replied I was ok
but was not expecting to hear anything about the "reassessment" that happened yesterday.
For 2/3 weeks.
LO and behold, no sooner had I replied to Kate's message, the phone rang !!!
A lady with a soft gentle voice spoke to me these words.
" Kenneth, they have placed you on the active list"
I was speechless for a moment, then my spirits were tossed Olympus high.
I am now in the race proper. A race I intend to win, a race of which
the first prize is a life extension. A prize worth winning, me thinks.
(I do have a quality of life)
I shall never forget this day or the timing of the phone call.
The transplant coordinator who phoned told me, I shall hear from her again soon.
to arrange a meeting to discuss the details of the surgeons decision.
A great weight has been lifted from my shoulder this day.
It is not very often I use expletives in my posts. But today is different.
so if I may just shout out loud " I am f*****g "buzzing" lol.
sorry about that, but I just could not resist it.
I am just soooo happy.
RE; my picture " my daughter in the water" I created it yesterday when I was thinking about the doctors, with their heads together. Wondering just WHAT conclusions they had come to and what decision they had made. All day yesterday it seemed like I was in a dream world. Today I am tingling with excitement . Who knows what I shall create next. I don't know, I must wait and see what pops into my head.
Deep peace of mind time, for me now.
PS. Sarah, I wish you the best of luck with "your MRI"
"DONT STOP BELIEVING"
February second is the exact halfway point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. It is the winter midpoint or cross-quarter day. The duskiest, coldest season is now officially half over!
A good day to learn that I am on the list.
Not long now and things in the garden shall begin to stir
