I just got the call Tuesday the my meld score had gone to a 16. At UW Madison, you go on the "short list" (active list) with a score of 15 or higher. Today I had to meet the surgeon, LCSW, nutritionist, get a chest x-ray, EKG, go to pre anesti clinic, ect.... I received a notebook with information and a DVD to watch about each stage of the getting prepared process. I can no longer turn my cell phone off. Now I won't be able to sleep tonight because I will be staring at my cell phone. When does that feeling go away?
