Topic: I'm listed

I guess this belongs here on the "good news".
I got a call today, that the have listed me on the transplant list.
Needless to say, I'm freaking out.
I really don't know what to say....

Re: I'm listed

Hi Tiff!

This is great news and yes, it sure does belong here in the good news section of the site!!! There's nothing wrong with freaking out or feeling scared, and if I was in your shoes I'd feel the same I think. But to me, this is good news, very very good news in fact and thanks for sharing it here! You say you don't know what to say, no problems, but what would Jim say to you?

Hugs,

Gavin

Re: I'm listed

Tiff,

That's great!  I used to be a liver transplant nurse, if you ever have any questions, but you should be assigned a transplant coordinator who will walk you through the process.
I don't want to worry you, but did you get insurance approval for the transplant?

Take care,

Susie

This gave me the chills Tiff!!  So excited for you and hell yeah this belongs in the GREAT news section.  I would be nervous, scared, anxious, and over the moon too!

Amazing, Tiffany!  So happy for you!  You are young and will do great!  Congratulations!

Re: I'm listed

Susie- thank you! I'm not really worried about insurance. We have awesome insurance, and they have been very good to us.

Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers.

I still don't know what to say.

Re: I'm listed

Tiff-Congrats again!! Enjoy the moment, it will be one to remember! ( I keep my letter framed!!). I might have to think a quick trip to Huntsville before you leave! I also doubt you would have been tested with out insurance approval first! Call when you have time (618-567-3247).
So glad prayers are working but I think we have an inside force called Kim and Jim!! God always has a plan!
Lots of prayers-Cathy

Re: I'm listed

Now this is what I have been waiting to hear! So happy, thrilled, and excited for you! Like I said on Facebook I never thought I would say I was excited over a liver transplant, but I am! This gives you an excellent chance for a recovery and a long life with those beautiful children and husband. I'll pray the wait is not too long! I can only imagine your anxiety! Do you do yoga or meditate? Great for the nerves. Sending hugs to you and all your family.

Please keep us updated...you go girl!
