I also signed my card years ago. In my state, there is a section on the drivers license that shows you are an organ donor. I'm 62, and in good health, but not sure down the road if anything could be harvested, but I don't think I will need anything where I will be going. Hope things work out well for your brother.

Hi, I thought I say my prayers are with you Darvy! I heard on TV that a hospital here in California, UCI Medical has had people on a waiting list for 7 years and have only done 12 transplants. They had over a hundred offers but turned them down because they didn't have a doctor available to do the surgerys. They never told any of the people on the list. How sad it was on the news that this hosp would do that to people. They could have been on a list elsewhere. The reason I brought this up was to have someone in this situation make sure that the list you are on is the best list. I think the system is failing us and we all need to re-evaluate who is accountable and ask for improvements. Rose darling, take care! -Freida

Thank you Freida,

What they have done in California is an absolute outrage!! My understanding here in Canada is that people are put on a provincial as well as a national registry as oppossed to the individual hospital. Despite the usual complainers, we have a pretty good health care system here. It's nice to know I can go to the emergancy room and have a broken leg fixed and not have to pay a penny. As for Darvy, we are all keeping a positive attitude and we are very aware of the power of prayer. I know it's just a waiting game for his transplants but it will happen. We have seen 2 miracles through prayer in my family so we're pushing for #3.

Thanks to everyone for your kind words of encouragement and concern. Keep spreading the word!

Rose

Hi...I am Jina and I am Darvy's way way older sister and I too have Cystic Fibrosis. I really do appreciate evryone trying to help out my brother, but please don't feel sorry for him or myself or anyone for that matter just because we have CF. It's a genetic disease that you get from both parents who either have it or carry the gene. As to this date (Nov 15th/06) my bro is doing fine. I am doing ok myself even tho I just found out that I have CFRD(cystic fibrosis related diabetes). I am glad my bro moved back to BC where he can get the proper medical attention that he needs cause Ontario CF docs SUCK!! I know my bro will pull thro this as nothing in the past has ever stopped him, not even jumping off the coffee table and breaking his ankle when he was I think 3?? So keep signing those cards and all will be well. Later ya'll
