Well, I got the news Thursday that it is a go! All my paperwork is done. I am mentally ready for this. I know it is going to be horrible. I do have a problem with how long this process of healing will really take. But they are very clear how it goes each step of the way. The weeks in hospital, the months of trying to get stronger and the long time of watching for rejection.
They call your day of transplant Day 0 and the will be your new birthday. My Day 0, new birthday, is on the 24th of June which is my donors actual birthday. How much more poetic could that be?
