Hi all,I had a call out of the blue today from the senior nurse to the transplant team and I am going into hospital on sunday or monday (depending on bed availability) to have my 4-5 night stay to be assessed for suitability for transplant. I have had all these tests before but they have to be the most up to date results before giving me "the pager". I am very excited at the potential this may end up in my life saving operation!
On the advice of my consultant and common sense we decided to move into a house instead of trying to conquer the two flights of stairs to get to our apartment we currently live in, as the housing market is in the condition its in we have decided to rent out our place and just rent the house and we are due to move in there at the beginning of August and if my assessment goes well my hospitals average waiting time on the transplant list is 12 weeks it looks like we will just have enough time to get settled before i go in to have my op.
I hope my news brings hope to others in a similar position and restore faith in some that are losing theirs.
I will blog again when i am out of hospital
stay safe and breathe easy
