@contentandwell Thank you for your well wishes! I did not know the MELD score could go over 40 either, until meeting 2 liver transplant recipients by chance while waiting for an appointment at Mayo. They both came to Mayo in Jacksonville after being treated at hospitals near their homes. They told me there stories of having MELD scores over 40 and receiving their transplants in about 1 week after arriving at Mayo. Take care!
