Well, today was not the best day, in some respects we are glad to get some answers, but Dave just did not feel well today. When I arrived just before 11am he did not look well at all, and he hasn't looked "good" this whole time, so for him to look worse was not something I enjoyed. So to cut a very long day short the end result is he will be going on the transplant list tomorrow. The meds aren't cutting it, he isn't getting better, and the new doctor seems like a real no nonsense guy and he just said, "transplant."
We are all handling this ok, he has a good attitude about all of this, and I know that is because his faith in the Lord is so strong. He has been such a gift to Doug and I, and we know that the Lord will protect this gift no matter what the outcome. We can't question the reasoning behind any of this because it is not our decision to make, but only the Lords. I am terrified for this young man, but at the same time trying to be so strong for him.
Keep praying as we PATIENTLY await for someone to give us a precious gift of life, the waiting is always the hardest. Please pray for the family that will be making this gift, because when it comes down to it they will be saying goodbye to a loved one, and that is so very difficult. They need our prayers just as much as we need them.
Blessings and thanks to you all.
