Don't lose hope! God works in mysterious ways.
That's what we've discovered my uncle is afflicted with. It is a disease of the liver, which sometimes - as in the case of my uncle - results in Cirrhosis. Unfortunately, because victims of this disease don't often exhibit symptoms until the later stages, we didn't find out until he was already in Stage 4 when he was diagnosed.
Now, he needs a liver transplant. Their best option for getting a successful donor liver is to list themselves in Florida (one of the 6 "regions" for transplants, apparently) in addition to their home area of Western Massachusetts. If and When they find themselves at the top of the transplant list, they will get a phone call - and immediately have to move to Florida to begin the treatments and transplant. They will be there a minimum of three months.
Obviously, this is a very difficult time for my family. We're doing what we can to keep spirits raised, but it's not easy. I try not to think about it when I'm posting here at DWT, but I'm failing at keeping this sadness from my Happy Place.
Warm thoughts and care are appreciated. If you'd like to learn more, my uncle and aunt set up a website to keep everyone informed of any new developments, and also to attempt to raise funds for their hopefully eventual need to move to Florida. My Family Matters
Thank you for your time, and for providing me a forum to express these unpleasant thoughts...
Thought's and prayer's coming to your family mritty.
