Hospital update

To keep you updated with the latest...

Last Thursday I had an endoscopy done by the boss of the Hepatology Dept 
at our hospital, she wanted to make sure she saw the state for herself 
rather than reading someone else's report, which was kind of her.

The endoscopy showed that there is probably sufficient blood-flow and 
low enough pressure that I am unlikely to bleed severely in the near 
future, and so the decision has been taken to take me off the liver 
transplant list. In 6 months time, she will do another endoscopy and 
review the situation again. But, to be honest, it is unlikely I will be 
put back on the list again.

This is good, in that I don't need a very major operation, but it also 
means that a bunch of other things won't get fixed at the same time. So 
it's good, but not *all* good.

So I have unpacked my hospital bag. 17 months preparing myself for it, 
and just 10 minutes to unpack my bag and put it all away again. Ho hum.

Many thanks for all your kind messages over the past months wishing me 
luck with the transplant, they really did help me. Time to move on, I guess.
