Today we finally got the news that we have been waiting for! The transplant coordinator from Brigham called to let Randy know that we finally was able to present his case to the transplant team yesterday and everything is all set to proceed! The was especially exciting news since at one point during this process, we were told that 90% of candidates get "deferred" the first time around. What that means is that the transplant team was not pleased with one or several test results and that they request that the tests be repeated. We had prepared ourselves for him to be in that 90% but are esctatic that he is in the 10% instead! Next as a formality, the hospital has to submit pre-approval to our health insurance company. (This shouldn't be an issue at all since they have covered all procedures up to this point.) once the approval is received, he will be listed-hopefully by no later this time next week. What a journey this continues to be!
