British Liver Trust

At last!

Dear All,

we were called in for a potential transplant yesterday and he has been operated on... He is in ITU and recovering slowly. Has some internal bleeding which is causing some worry...

A huge thank you for all your support just as we thought a transplant would never happen...

I say a special prayer for the donor and their family for this very special gift....

Oh, congratulations Pear delighted for you both after such a long and worrying wait, a truly wonderful Christmas gift. Fingers crossed they get on top of this 'plumbing' issue and hubby recovers quickly and you can both start life afresh.

We're obviously just spending our first Christmas on the list but we've enjoyed it and we too look forward to our 'Happy Ever After!'

Love and best wishes to you both, Katie xxx

Thank you all for your kind words...

I cannot put into words how much I am in awe of the teams here at the Royal Free...

He is in an induced coma, stable, kidney dialysis etc

The liver is doing well but it is still a critical time...

They have started him on the drugs which protect the liver...

What is expected not expected has mostly come from the wonderful posts on this site, I would have been even more lost if I had not the knowledge shared by you all...

Thank you

It is early days yet, don't worry. I too was on kidney dialysis & induced coma until late on day 2. Cant remember anything about my time in ICU but I do know that the staff are fantastic. Our thoughts are with you both, so happy that the best of Xmas presents was gifted at this special time. Its 4 mths since my op now & I feel great & am back at work. Still sorting drugs out as kidneys still playing up but I feel fine, just put a greenhouse up for wifey. Our prayers go out to all Donor families Love Bill & Linda
