This is gonna be a short and sweet post! I just wanted to share with everyone that as of yesterday, I got the invite from Stanford to come down and meet with the doctors!! This is one of the many calls we have been waiting for, for a long time now. My appointments are February 12th and 13th. My mom and I fly down to california on February 11th and come back on the 14th. And I'm crossing my fingers that my best friend Melissa (who lives down in california) will be able to get time off work to be with me through all the craziness that's going to be happening down there! So what this exciting news means is that I'm going down to meet with all the transplant specialist and I'm most likely gonna be put through all the same testing I've already gone through. But at the end of the trip I will either be coming back with a pager, or I will be coming back with a "since you seem to be stable, we're not gonna list you". We are obviously hoping to come back with a pager!!!! If I do get my pager, it's just a waiting game from there!
So please, keep your fingers crossed that everything goes as smoothly as possible! This is what I've been working so hard for the last three months and I owe it all to my mom! If I wouldn't have had her with me the entire time, I wouldn't have been able to make it this far!
I will post a long update about whats been going on the last three or so weeks later. I'm taking some "me" time right now. I needed to get away and relax one last time before I get tethered to a pager!
Prayers and good thoughts are always welcome and VERY much appreciated <3
