#teammissy Transplant Warriors Update...
Her outlook was positive and optimistic and she is taking this a day at a time right now. l am SO very proud of her and amazed by her.
Melissa Smith wants you all to know that she can feel your prayers, your love, your light, and your support, and it is helping her SO MUCH! A HUGE " THANK YOU!" is what she wants me to emphasize to you all greatly!
Now for the update...
She had a procedure done early this afternoon to drain fluid from her lungs and liver area. Until she is stronger and more stable, they won't be able to do additional necessary procedures to help with the bile duct issues and other issues she is experiencing.
Today she was told that the donated liver will have to be replaced, and she is being put back on the donor list for a liver. The current liver is not functioning properly, and the word 'diseased' was used. It doesn't fit correctly in her body and there are various issues that are not able to be resolved with the current liver.
There is no timeline for this; it could be a week, two weeks, a month, etc. For, home will be the hospital.
Please continue to pray and lift her, and our family up. Mamma ( Gloria ) could use all the uplifting possible.
If you would like to, please send a video message, song, pictures, to her Facebook messenger. She said this is okay to do, and she can watch/listen between doctor teams and nurses checks.
Your support and prayers are helping tremendously!
