  • Thank you, Duane!

  • Thank you for the sweet message on my wall, Duane! Hope you're doing well. :)

  • Thank you so very much for the warm invite.  Prayers for your journey.  I was sick for almost ten years before receiving my organ. Keep fighting!


  • Hi Duane,

    Thanks for welcome comments,  like you i had been on last stage of liver, what meant you for last stage of liver, and what is your meld score? If I am not wrong your liver is now better functioning as it was 2 years before, I hope so. 


  • Thank you for the welcome message, I am excited to be a part of this group.
  • Thank you very much for your warm welcome.
  • That sounds great.  I've moved to labs once a month now.  Maybe my arm can recover a little now :)

  • Thanks for the welcome.  I was rejected at two other places before I got on the list in Memphis.  So hang in there.  I've had my liver for about 6 months now.  People kept telling me I would feel so much better; but they forgot to tell me it would take awhile after surgery to get that way.  I pray you'll be able to get yours.  Thank you again.

  • Thank you for the warm welcome Duane Keller :)
    I wish you the best with your liver problem and in everyday life. I hope you get on that list too.
  • Hey Duane, it means a lot, being welcomed when joining a new group, many thanks for that.

    I expect things work pretty much the same in the USA as here in the UK, except of course that our health care is free. People tend to benefit from support in times of need wherever they live. 

    I'm 7 months post liver Transplant and recovering fairly well. Hope you are coping well enough. 

    Take care mate.
