Please Help Get a Transplant For Tony!

On February 19, 2018, less than two months after his father passed, my husband Tony received a call that we never expected and that would change his and our family’s lives forever. It was his doctor calling to tell him he has liver cancer! In addition to treatment, he is also in need of a liver transplant.

Today (8/2/2018), Tony saw the nurse practitioner in the gastroenterologist’s office regarding scheduling his next EGD. It will be performed next week.

He’s experiencing pain in his right side and still has not regained all of his strength. He was advised to take it easy and take things day by day.

No pictures to share today as my mind was all over the place as I searched through his humongous file for his medication list which I could not find. Recalled I probably had not put it back since his appointment last week with the liver specialist. Got home and learned that is exactly what I had done πŸ™‚ .

Thank you again so much for your ongoing prayers, support and encouragement!

WOW!!! More great news to share!!! Today (7/25/2018) at Tony’s appointment with the liver specialist, we were told last month’s MRI indicates that the tumor is DEAD πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ !!!

But he definitely needs the transplant. So Piedmont Transplant has to prove for six months that it stays dead or small. If it does, he will probably have his transplant in February or March πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ !!! So until then, the doctors want to keep him as healthy as possible.

They also want him to follow-up with his gastroenterologist to have another EGD.

The doctor prescribed him two new meds to prevent bleeding. Since he has heart disease, the aspirin a day that was recently stopped due to internal bleeding, will be started back after the transplant.

His next MRI is scheduled for next month, and he is scheduled to see the liver specialist again in October.

Oh, by the way, he now weighs less than me πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ !!! I have really got to stick with my exercise and healthier eating now πŸ™‚ .

Thank you all again so much for your continued prayers, encouragement and support!!!
