After three weeks of worrying about this spot on my CT scan, I was informed that the procedure had been cancelled. The specialist reviewed my scans and said he didn't see any need to do it because it would be a waste of time and money. They are all but certain it's not cancerous. I was a bit shocked, but I'll take it. I only wish the doctor would have reviewed these scans earlier and saved me some grief. Needless to say, we are all excited about this recent development. I also learned yesterday that my MELD score went back up the night I spent in the hospital. It is now 22.
Today I looked at the UNOS website and found out that I am now among the top ten people listed at my transplant center. There are 2 people in the highest category and 8 in mine. This brought me chills. It is both exciting and frightening. Suddenly everything seems surreal.
