The Transplant moves on
Good news, the National Transplant Committee approved our donor! My wife was convinced that the committee would find a way to say no, but they came through! We got the call from the hospital this afternoon.
There are still a number of important steps to complete before the transplant. The next hurdle is a full medical workup at the hospital for my son and the donor. We have been told that the workup will take two days assuming they don't find anything wrong with either of them. (Other than the obvious). Once the tests have been done, the transplant can take place anytime within 6 months. Together with the donor and the doctors, we will try and pick a time that works for everyone.
We are trying to schedule the testing appointments within the next few weeks. Stay tuned for more updates and thank you for your prayers and positive thoughts,
Elliot and Leiah
