Well, I've just got back from the hospital, had another meeting with the
transplant team.

As of now, I'm suspended on the liver waiting list.
They are going to do another endoscopy in the next 2 or 3 weeks, and
we'll see the outcome of that to see if the varices have gone down at
all which will imply better blood flow through my new portal vein
I suspect this will most likely show an improvement.

If it does, then the original reason for me being on the list will have
gone (well enough). So it will be no longer worth doing what is, in my
case, a very difficult and dangerous procedure.

So I'm officially suspended from the list at the moment, but not removed.

As I've spent the past 15 months or so mentally preparing for the
procedure, this is going to take a bit of getting used to. It's going to
take a few days to sink in properly.
