Yep, I'm doin the happy dance! Got a text message from the potential donor telling me she had too much to text and to call her!!!! Oh my gosh, I was so nervous as the phone was ringing! But it all worked out because she passed the latest test and was scheduled for her all day appointment with the lab, nurse and surgeon!!!! She'll get all the final testing completed at this appointment... chest xray, blood work and I think sent for a CT Scan of her kidneys!!! Her appointment is right before Thanksgiving!!!!! We're soooo excited and so relieved that she's moving on to the next step! I just hate that it's so far away! It seemed like I wished away time for it to be Oct 15th (Neil's appt) and now I have another month to wait.. I hate waiting for stuff like this!
Neil had his first transplant dream last night... he said it was weird.. he said he woke up and they still had a tube in his throat. I think the anxiety is setting in after seeing the surgeon. He told him 2 things that kind of freaked him out.. he'll have a catheter for a few days post surgery and he'll have a main port, I think they called it.. I think that's for dialysis if there's complications but I'm not sure. I suppose I ought to read up on that.. all Neil said was that he hopes both of those are put in after he's asleep! I hope he doesn't start having a lot of dreams about the surgery... I guess that's normal but I know how dreaming about stuff can sometimes make it worse!
All the boys are better, by the way.. thank goodness because I was getting sick of everyone being sick! And thankfully Neil didn't catch any of it! I guess his immune system is better than we thought!
I probably won't update much till next month because there's really not much else going on! We have done everything we need to do.. we just need to wait for the donor's appointment and then go from there! Pray for patience for me.... I'm going to need it! :)
