« Why Afghanistan Fell Off The Map | Main | New Pancreas A No Go »
We just got a heads-up from the transplant center that they may have a good match on a pancreas for the First Mate. I'll let you know what happens. I may be hospiblogging this weekend ... Keep us in your prayers!
UPDATE: We don't know if we're a go quite yet, and it looks like we'll know early tomorrow morning. The pancreas is at least a three-antigen match, about what one would expect from a sibling, so the match is very good. What isn't known is the general condition of the pancreas, and that can't be determined until it's been removed from the donor. Like I said, I'll know more in the morning.
Which reminds me -- we're not the only ones who need prayer tonight. The family of the donor needs your prayers more than we do. Of course, we don't know anything about them, but just ask God to give them comfort and care in this time of loss.Sphere It View blog reactions
