>> Folks,
>> 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.
>> Cheers.
>> Jules
> Well... Mostly good, I guess:/.
> I hope you land on this being good, in the end... While pondering,

> Swede;-).
> All the best!
> Cheers
I'll drink to that!
