Some good news for the Liver Are Us family
I was just informed the Pittsburgh Hospital has found a donor for my three-year old granddaughter Cassandra. Her liver transplant surgery is scheduled for 2 am and will take 12-18 hours. Her mom and dad are on their way racing from Philly to Pittsburgh to see, hug and love on this tiny warrior before she's wheeled into the OR. Double the good news in that the transplant team and surgeons said this is a perfect match.
Any blessings, prayers you can spare please send them in the direction of Pittsburgh.
For the Warrior Princess.
You are all in my heart. Let us know how it goes.
I'll keep the board updated. This was an undeniable win after the grim news my husband received last week. The Universe is finally giving the family a break. Of course, now I'll be on pins and needles until I get a surgical update. But this is certainly a step in the right direction!
Thanks for letting us know. We all need good news.
It was the good news my family really needed at the moment. And out of the blue after all the round abouts, insurance denials and anxiety that these catastrophic events produce.
Thanks for the note!
The Warrior Princess is thin at the moment but not down. And always with an elfin grin.
Still dancing, too. LOL.
We are the prayer and blessings collection crew at the moment. The more the better!
You'll probably have read my recent update from this morning.
Turns out I jumped the gun with my Cassandra post; her 'perfect match' liver was not so perfect after all. Her surgeon rejected the organ on examination. Not sure what the 'why' was in the decision-making but the team put out a definite no-go.
So, Cassandra is back on the organ list and we will await another call, hopefully sooner rather than later.
Thank you all for the good wishes.
I'm convinced the surgery will happen, eventually. We just need to wait a bit longer.
