I'm a transplant caregiver. Let's connect and share.
My name is Bill. I’ve been looking for a group to share experiences and concerns with when they arise. My wife and I have been going through the liver transplant process for over a year. Four months ago she received a liver transplant. I was and am happy to do whatever is needed like shopping, cleaning, cooking, hugging, loving and going to appointments. So far things are going well and she is mostly back to her normal independent life. The pandemic does give me some anxiety along with concerns about the transplant since now being on immune suppressants makes her more susceptible to the environment. Like everyone else we cannot do all the things we want to because of the pandemic.
One of my sisters is a retired nurse and is someone to turn to for support.
We are both retired. She works part time from home for a cancer support group helping people living with cancer. I also volunteer for the same group and other non-profits.
One thing I learned is not to worry about things out of my control and to focus on things that I can control.
So that’s it in a nutshell
All the best…
