Transplant Tales: to China and back

Sunday, June 15, 2008

Hello All,

I am very sorry I have not posted in so long. I have just been trying to keep it all together.
I am now back to work (thank God) I must have sent out 100 resumes since January 08.
Don't get me wrong I love being off with my children, but disability is not enough to live on, all annuity's, pension's and savings are gone, so off to work I go I hope I can keep it up.

The divorce is final, the last few months were very trying!
I also experienced a couple of week's of extreme abdominal pain I thought might be the cancer, It turned out, (by no help from doctors) that when I was in China for my transplant they were unable to put the gallbladder in me. So I should have been on a special diet, thanks so much U.S. doctors for not reading the post transplant manuscript from the Chinese doctor's.
So no more bacon, greasy foods, cheese thing's like that.

I still get many people corresponding with me re: transplants for themselves or there loved one's and the most common question is how to go to China to do it, and unfortunately I have to tell them that China has halted all foreign transplants, but there are still option's, anyone needing help should contact me either here or my personal e-mail eric_g_deleon@sbcglobal.net

The kid's are on summer vacation now and are well we are going to do all we can to have fun with each other this summer.

I will try to post more often in the future

Today is a very sad day for us. Eric lost his battle with his cancer. We had the opportunity to see him last night and tell him how much we loved him and our good-byes. It was very sad. We were so proud of how Eric was able to tell his story and help other people with the same situation he was in. I will never forget Eric and Lorie's trip to China. They were so brave.

Our prayers are with Eric's family.

Our love to you Eric may you rest in peace and will remain in our hearts forever.

My deepest sympathy sympathy to Eric and his beloved family.

Recently, I was contacted by a French TV Journalist who was doing research on the subject of patients who need organs and have had to seek transplants in other countries because they have surpassed the criteria used in the United States.

My son, Kevin Scott was such a person and he became a friend of Eric's while he was seeking a transplant in China. They became e-mail buddies while Eric offered Kevin hope and encouragement every step of the way.

Unfortunately, Kevin lost his battle while in China waiting for a healthy and compatible liver; he passed away on December 22, 2006. We have kept up with Eric through personal e-mail and his blog hoping and praying he would win his battle with cancer.

This morning while speaking to Mikael, the French TV Journalist, I mentioned Eric to him as an additional resource for his project. He said he was in the process of trying to contact Eric but learned that Eric Passed away on the 25th of September. This is how I learned of Eric's passing.

I want to extend my deepest and heartfelt sympathy to his beloved children and his family. He fought so hard hard to be here for them, but God saw his suffering and decided it was just too much more for Eric to continue to bear.

His children will be well taken care of from heaven by their new guardian angel. God Bless and keep you Eric. Say hello to my Kevin, he will be there to greet you.

Love,
Connie Carpenter
