I just wanted to send you a great big hugs and thanks for allowing your daughter to be a donor. I'm sorry that none of the recipients have contacted you. As Rise said some people don't know what to say, but I have to believe…"

Carole, I've been reluctant to logon this website, and have been keeping busy with exercise, meds, rest, home and life management for the most part, still 'treading water' as I am too healthy for Tx, per the last Clinic at UTSW. You are so nice to stay in touch and continue your fellowship here since your Tx.
Carole, Thank you for your comment. I know it is a lot of decisions to be made with this, and even with all the tests, I may not be eligible, so maybe I am worrying for nothing!! Appreciate your offer of advice, and do not be surprised if I take you up on it. You live a bit south east of me, I am west of Waco, but the hospital is in Temple. This is a new program, so there is no track record to go by.......Thanks for the good advice.
Aw! Thank you for the comments of appreciation for caregivers! And I am so glad to hear that you're doing well! Baylor is an amazing facility!within the first 9 days of 2013, They've done 10 liver and kidney transplants!
