Yesterday my mom, Kelly, Coleman (my fiance) and I went to UCSF. This was day 3 of tests for Kelly. It was actually my first time there since deciding to move forward with transplant. I thought (or they made it sound like) we were going to watch a video. Instead it was an hour and a half long powerpoint presentation on what to expect, pre, during and post surgery. Most of the stuff we already knew. However, there was one interesting, shocking statistic we learned: 100% of patients who have transplant develop skin cancer 15 years down the road!
Well, I hate to have to screw up their statistics but I won’t be getting skin cancer at any time in my life because God has given me the promise of health. Whether that health comes in the form of supernatural healing, a transplant, or using natural health (I’ve known quite a few people to reverse their cirrhosis with natural health) or slow recovery, God is the author and finisher of all things! Actually, it was kind of a difficult decision for me to lay down reversing my cirrhosis and accepting where God has me at this point in my life. God doesn’t conform to how we think life should go, we just need to have faith and follow where He leads us, even if it’s the complete opposite of what we had thought before.
Kelly had an ultra sound yesterday. It took forever. We were in San Francisco all day. I don’t quite understand how 2 simple appointments can take all day, but they did. I may have mentioned this in my previous post but I will be repetitive. The doctor that did Kelly’s physical and looked over her tests from Tuesday and Wednesday said that he will be recommending her for the transplant! However, that’s not a surprise because she qualified two years ago, but it’s a step forward toward getting us a surgery date. Oh, I’ve also had more energy lately, not much, but I’m really pushing myself to get my endurance up so I can be as healthy as possible for when surgery rolls around. The plus side of this is that by the time I lay my head on the pillow, I’m out like a light! Until I have something else interesting to say… have a great night!
