I Need Your Support!

I have been battling end stage liver failure since 2009. I went to Duke Medical Center with the understanding that I would need a liver within 5 years, if not sooner. Up until a month ago, I was doing okay. I followed my doctor’s orders and was able to gain several years on to the estimated time. I thought I would be able to survive without one. I was doing so well that I thought that I had beaten the odds.

It’s July 15th and I’m in much worse shape than I was on my last update. Since then, on July 03 I had to be put on a standing order to have a Paracentesis every three weeks with a limit drawn of 6 liters every time. They may be drawing off 6 liters but there is that much or more still left inside me. That leaves me with no relief and I still have difficulties getting dress and tying my shoes. It’s hard to eat due to all the swelling. My INR level which determines the severity of my Liver Disease, and they usually do transplants when the level gets into the 20’s. My MELD score now is 22. I’m ready for all of this to be done and over with so I can begin to heal, so please pray I get that operation soon. All of these Paracentesis’ are adding to the cost so Donations are the only way I can afford it at this point, so please consider donating as well everything donated will greatly be appreciated. Donations can be filed on your taxes as a deduction. Thank you for listening and wish me luck.

Thank you and may God Bless you,

Looks like I’m down to days for my Transplant Surgery. I can’t wait to get rid of this diseased liver for a new one, so I can get well. Keep praying and donate where you can. I’m near the end but not quite there yet. I also will have a lifetime of drugs I will need to purchase and it will be that way until I can get back to work. God Bless everyone!!

I just want to thank everyone who has donated to my fundraiser. I’m finding it hard to find a way to form a fundraising activity where the public could get involved. If any of my friends knows of anyone willing to hold a fundraiser let me know. I thinking of things like a plate dinner, a car wash, a bowling night, motorcycle run or anything along those lines. You can contact me here on this site if you do. Thanks again for the donations.
