Good news. After a bit of a delay, Kurt has been placed on the transplant list. It took a little longer than we had hoped due to some apparent "emergency" listings the staff at U. of Utah Hospital had to deal with, but he got the call late last week.
This is a long process. Living donor possibilities will be evaluated in the next few months.
Keep sending thoughts and prayers and encouragement to Kurt.

Kurt had a good Dr's appointment in Salt Lake City on Friday. He has gained weight and is feeling better. The Dr. made the comment that he looks like a great transplant candidate. Everything needed to get on the transplant list is complete and he should get on the list either today or next Monday (review happens on Mondays). Once on the list, the living donor possibility can be evaluated. That process can take 6 to 8 months.
Keep Kurt in your thoughts and prayers and we welcome any help in raising money for helping to cover uninsured medical expenses.
