Hi not been on here for a while but this forum was the first one I joined when my husband was diagnosed with cirrhosis due to haemachromotosis. You all gave such good advice and support and I took it all onboard for the day when his call came in
So one year after being listed out of the total blue the phone rang last Thursday evening Saying a suitable match with a non beating heart was available. After a long wait through the night with the surgeons checking the liver he was taken to theatre and six hours later was in ICU. Tomorrow he is to be discharged so he progressing very well and what a miracle. Thanks to the donor the wonderful staff at St JAmes in LEeds my husband is coming home with a lovely new liver.
I wish you all the luck in the world to everyone who is currently on the waiting list. 😀
