No Dice

30 Mar

As most of you have read via Tweet by now, the kidney didn’t work out for us this time.

They kept strining us along until 10:30 at night! I guess a test that needed to be done in order to make the final determination was started late and then the supervisor who needed to review the results was late in doing so. Poor Hubby was so hungry!

In any case…Hubby’s blood (whem mixed with the donor’s) came up with three markers (reactions) while another person in the top three on the waiting list only had one reaction. So, he got the organ. Which seems like it was fair because they told Hubby that that guy had had his IVIG treatment several months ago while Hubby just finished his on Thursday. *

They also told Hubby that the IVIG would work better and better the longer out he was from treatment. So, hopefully next time.

* All of my descriptions and interpretations are just that and I have no idea if I am understanding/explaining all of this accuratly. All I have to offer is my own meger comprehension. 😉

    Well, hopefully there won’t be a long wait for the next kidney to come along.

    Sorry it didn’t work out this time but hope the next one is a great match.

    I’m still bummed this last time wasn’t the time. It stinks to be so close and then not be the winner. Hopefully the next time is just around the corner.

    BUMMER. I’m sorry. Here’s hoping that the next one comes along really, really soon.
