Topic: Got my meld score today

Insurance has approved my transplant. And I also got my meld score today...a big Ol 7!
I'm calling dr. Chapman tomorrow and will be going to barns ASAP to see what they say.

I'm starting to become more at peace with it! But by looking at my meld score, I might have a long wait.

Tiffany, ask Dr. Chapman what he thinks about living donor transplant. It's a very difficult subject to breach with the family members. You need to discuss it with doctors first.

Oh yes Eli! That is on the list! My sister is a match for me, she would love nothing more than to say she saved my life. wink

Your sister is AMAZING!!!

Good to hear that living donor program is on the list. Not to belabor the point, but... with meld score of 7, it should be at the *top* of the list.

Tiff....wow...things are moving so quickly.  I have to catch my breath.  Fingers are crossed.
