"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.
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.
