About two years ago, Marcin was taken to Florida Hospital in very critical condition — diagnosis: liver failure. The only hope for survival was an immediate liver transplant. Marcin’s MELD score (the standard scale to measure end-stage liver failure) rapidly climbed. Within just a few days it reached 33 (on a scale of 40), and Marcin was placed on the active transplant waiting list. His veins were bursting, he was losing blood and fell into a coma.
On May 24, 2013 Marcin received his gift-of-life – his liver transplant. Just when we thought he was finally on his way to recovery, his condition again worsened and he was taken into surgery. This time the diagnosis was arterial thrombosis and we were told that Marcin would need a second liver transplant! After many painful days, many hospital visits, many prayers and tears, finally on March 6, 2014 Marcin received his second liver transplant. We won the deadly race against time, but soon after Marcin developed an infection. Aggressive antibiotic treatment was the only option, with a very scary consequence: kidney malfunction.
