So we are in a good position and offers should come any day now.
I feel relatively good and strong as well, so this should serve me well during and after surgery. None of this would be possible without the help that so many of you have provided, both spiritually and temporally. The donations we have received from so many of you have been an invaluable resource to help with the countless prescriptions, tests, and clinical visits we have been through and will continue to go through post transplant. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
As I said I am feeling pretty good, all things considered. I get tired easily but am still able to kick the soccer ball around with Megan and Miles occasionally or go for a brief walk down our street. Then I usually need an hour-long nap, but it's worth it!
I thought I'd include a few photos of my current physical appearance just to give you an idea of what a failing liver can do to your body in its final stages. I don't think they're too graphic (at least I hope not!) but hopefully it gives you an idea of what we're fighting for here.
