I made it to Minneapolis and it has been a busy week of getting Laura
placed into a transitional care facility. She is incredibly fragile,
mind and body. I just don't really have the words to describe. I
just keep trying to focus on the many tasks at hand and (pray) that
she can maintain until the transplant. Her status changes daily, and
although she would have been eligible again for the living donor
scenario a week ago that is not the case now. It is really a
"numbers" game in many ways as I am fast learning.
The good news is that the donations continue to come in, and tomorrow
I will attempt to get her through her phone appointment with Social
Security. We have the benefit meeting next week so I feel good about
that as well.
Enough for now. There will be another e-mail going out within the
next few days with her new contact information at the Richfield Health
Center, direct phone # and all of that. She has a hard time operating
the cell phone so this will be a better way to reach her. We have a
meeting tomorrow to "access" her condition but this really needs to
work out as she has limited options based on her health care coverage.
