Topic: FYI Scott has gone for transplant!!!!!!

They just took Scott back for transplant. The dr wanted us to know the potential scenarios of what would happen if he found cancer outside the liver. Scott has opted to give the liver to someone else and probably wouldn't survive the operation if that happens. The good news is that the risk is quite slim. He should do great.

I'm fried from the adrenaline overload. I'm pretty sure the intensity of this gig has shaved years from my life and added them to my hiney.

Heaven help us all get through the excruciatingly long days, and the longer nights.

God Bless,
Brenda

Re: FYI Scott has gone for transplant!!!!!!

The liver is in! They will try to take Scott off the ventilator in the morning. No sign of cancer, but we won't know for sure until the biopsy, or whatever they are looking at, comes back on Thursday. It's more intense than I had imagined, but so hopeful I can't complain.

Thanks for all your love, support, and prayers,
Brenda
