GOOD LUCK TO ME!!!!

For those of you who know about my old liver needing a replacement,well,I got some pretty good news today!!!

I email my co-ordinator at the Transplant Hospital once in awhile,especially when I'm depressed,to see if I've gone up the list and where I stand. So today Sandy emailed me back saying that I was definitely going up the list but at the same time that there is always more critical people in need of a liver than me.
Which I understand,cause I'm not at the dying stage so to speak,but she did say that she figures it will be happening within the next 6 months!!!

Iwas jumping with joy!!! So I wanted to color this image last week,he has a four leaf clover,lol.
I am wishing myself luck,that's ok right??? We have planned a 2 week trip to Jamaica with my Brother and his wife in January. So I told my DH,everything is falling in it's place. We will go relax before all this happens,because I know it won't be easy on us,but I'm a tough cookie.
The only thing is,I will miss my family because where it's taking place is 12 hours away from home and I will have to stay there 4 to 6 weeks after the surgery.

But hey,we'll cross that bridge when we get there! For now,I'm happy,I see light at the end of the tunnel!!

Happy Tuesday folks, Hugs,Diane

WAHOO!!!! That is fabulous news for you! The 4-6 weeks will fly by (you won't even remember half of it - LOL!) I hope I can provide you with lots of moral support- I was so appreciative of all the support I received when I went through it!

Diane that is wonderful news. Keeping the prayers going that you move up that ladder closer again soon. The weeks you have to be gone will go by quickly. You will be having therapy and all and that will make it go by quicker.
Love your card and yes you can wish yourself luck anytime.

Big congrats to you!!!! I can relate to your feelings my DH had a kidney/pancrease transplant. It's a long and rough round but so worth it in the end. Glad to hear things are starting to come together for you. Big hugs!!!
