100 days.

 

 
 
"Sitting by the phone"
 
The Transplant coordinator Phoned me on Monday ,
 informing me that my presents was required  at the Freeman’s hospital  the following morning.
This was to Talk with the surgeon about my forthcoming procedure, and to sign my body
over to the surgeons.
The risks involved were discussed. But was astounded when he told me that "the average
waiting time for a liver transplant was only 100 days" and that I could expect to be in hospital
for anything up to 3 Month.  "gulp"  (cherno will not be best pleased ) 
 
It all depends on how the new liver reacts and my own powers of recovery.
I was pleased when he told me that if the first transplant  failed.
Then a "re transplant" would be possible.
The surgeon also left me in no doubt that , a great amount of time and money has been invested in me.
So I was expected to take care of myself and never drink alcohol again. (I have no problem with this)
I have been dry now since May 14th 09.
 
I am also grounded, If I were to go traveling then I would be suspended from the "active list"
with the possibility of missing out on a new Liver.
We do not want that do we !
 
So, that is about the size of it, just a case now of waiting for my " new" Mobil phone to vibrate.
I have never owned a Mobil before in my life, but circumstances decreed it is time for me to buy one.
 
Happy valentines day to all for tomorrow
 
and happy birthday  tomorrow, to your friend and mine .
Suki, from the Wildwood !
 
"OH" yes and happy new year to any chinese who pass by
leaving spam all over the place.
Dam them.
 
It is the year of the tiger and It is a shame only some 30 Tigers now exist in China.
An estimated 4.000 once excisted
 The reason:  a tiger’s penis soaked in alcohol is said to increase virility.
 
 
No chance of me chewing on one then  !!!
 
Not that I need to  🙂
 
And on that note I leave you with a tune I quite like.
 
 
Enjoy.

  10. Sarah.Yes I guess that I can not neglect the fact that I would be lost beneath the bed sheets. Without access to this weird and wonderful world wide web.Timid oneIt had slipped my tormented mind the possibility of suffering hospital food , for up to 3 month. But I guess, If I can survive having my liver cut out and another one installed. Then I can put up with the food. Well that is the theory.I am unsure if it is permitted to use a camera in a hospital, even a web camera.

  12. We bought a netbook and a ‘dongle’ in a package when Commander was in hospital he used it to play games and to read his emails. Not technologically brilliant but it does the job.Fingers crossed it won’t be too long and that all goes well for you good sir.
