Well we made it the Shanghai after a long 13 1/2 hour flight. We lucked out with getting First Class. The coordinator Tony met us at the airport an escorted us to the hotel.
We started our first full day by meeting with Dr. Fan the leading Transplant Surgeons at 7:30am tis morning. Then the rest our day was full of Tests, Tests, and more Tests. Blood work, EKG, Bone scan, respitory test, sonogram, CTscan, an a MRI. Tony had told us we had the weekend to visit the city being that we finished all pretests and we were now in a holding pattern.
Tony took us to a restaurant for lunch and friendly chat. In the middle of lunch Tony received a phone call informing us that there was a O+ liver that would be available tomorrow. WOW!!
We have been here less than 24 hours and we have a possible match.
They admitted Eric into the Hospital tonight. But we were able to write a absent note stating that we would be back in the morning. To funny!!
So off to bed we go, after an exhausting day. We will head off to the hospital once again bright an early. There we will sit and wait to find out if the potential liver passes all the screening tests. Should it end up good, Eric will go into surgery on the evening of the March 3rd. Which would last approximately 7 hours.....
I will keep you posted!! Once again thank you all for your heart felt thoughts and prayers. It means a lot to have such a fantastic group of friends and family.
