This liver thing

So, Beaux's finally on the list for a liver transplant and I made the mistake of looking at the UNOS site to see what that actually means. Some of those folks have been on the transplant list for three to five years. Not good. Dr. Hutson said the average time that someone lives after a major bleed out like Beaux had is about 18 months unless they have a liver transplant. We've got six months under our belts since this began.
But as fast as I want things to move, I want them to slow down. If he can't work and we're down to my income, we're toast. Seriously. We'll lose the house. I'm trying to get creative and figure out how to make this work, get bills all paids, etc., but I'm not seeing things very clearly yes. So I pray a lot. At the end of the day, we're doing it all by guess and by God. Thank God the latter is a real option.
