Almost on the list!
Just a short update:
Had my final appointment today for dental exam and clearance which thank goodness I passed with flying colors (and my teeth are super clean, had put off dental cleanings during covid and I was well past due).
Aside from a double booster vaccine from a nurse on Monday all my tests are done, I have been watching them come in online and although I am not a doctor I can safely assume with my knowledge and understanding that I am likely all cleared to be listed.
What this mean is that on Wendsday the transplant comitee at the hospital will discuss my case at their weekly meeting and if all agree I should be listed and vote yes I will be listed within 24 hours.
At my consult with the surgeon they did remind again that due to my blood type being type o positive, they may have to "park" me on inpatient for several weeks to a few months in order to get me heart. I was already aware of this but nice to hear it directly from them so I know that my expectations are correct. So after listing I will likely undergo a third right heart catheterization and if my numbers still look bad or I am declining more they may "park" me. Sorry I got a kick out of the way the surgeon phrased it like that, it gave me a laugh so I think I will use it.
Not looking forward to having to go this route and not spend my wait at home but I will take weeks stuck inpatient over no heart at all.
Finally got caught up on some sleep today, stress levels are going back down, I am hoping after some food and a warm shower I might luck out and sleep right through the night for a change.
Off to fill my belly, I will let you all know as soon as I have news.
Thanks to everyone who has sent messages and comments. And those who I know may have read and sent positive thoughts my way! I hope y'all are in good health and your own struggles easy right now.
