I was going to blog about all the craziness that I've had to deal with the past 2 days but I really don't want to relive it by regurgitating every little boring detail, so I'm attempting to let it go...
Just know that the saying 'the squeaky wheel gets the grease' came true for me. I spent the past 2 days engulfed in emails, text messages and phone calls between potential donors and the pretransplant nurses trying to find out why nothing is moving along. Apparently after I squeaked enough, the 'lost' paperwork was 'found' and things are moving....
In fact.. they're moving so much that we've discovered 1 of our potential donors is not a candidate at this time. Rest assured, the hospital is not allowed to tell us which one, or why but being as the current group is all close friends, we know why and it's all good. No hard feelings or anything.. just very grateful that the person wanted to be tested in the first place!
So.. I had started a list of people who had told me they wanted to get tested but quite frankly, I didn't keep up with it enough. So if you're reading this and you would like to be added to our list, please send me an email and let me know. They can only work with 4 people at a time and only 1 has been declared ineligible. I do have a list of a few people but I figured I better take this opportunity to 'solicit' more people.
I do understand it's a big decision and a commitment so I understand if no one offers. I would do it in a heartbeat but it's going to be hard enough on us with him having the surgery, let alone me being down and out with surgery too.
Thank you! :)
