When Kelly received the results from Tuesday's double blood tests via email this morning she right away noticed some discrepancies in the numbers. She keeps meticulous medical notes and this has happened before where the Dynalab blood numbers differ from University Hospital blood numbers. So, because this latest bile salts/acid blood work check is so crucial for Kelly's liver transplant committee's decision next Monday, we decided to forego Dynalabs numbers and go straight to London's University Hospital today and have them do the liver blood tests themselves. We know they prefer their own lab to do blood tests as opposed to other area labs. So, all three of us piled into the Subaru at 11:20 and headed for London's University Hospital.

In the comment section of Tuesday's post, this question was asked regarding me being a possible donor for Kelly's liver transplant.........."Al: Have you been tested as a possible match"? No, I haven't, and here's why.....First, the cut-off age for donors is 55 years old, and second, we can't have both of us down in a major recovery situation at the same time. One of us has to remain strong to help the other. This second reason is why I might have to cancel my hip surgery if Kelly gets on the transplant list. Right now, everything is hanging on this second decision of the liver transplant committee which might be known sometime after next Monday. Whichever way that decision swings, we will be faced with more decisions at that time.
I stopped at the Bayfield Garage this morning and told them the Jeep is not starting again. They said they would come with a flatbed truck and pick it up. And, that is just what they did about half an hour after I got home.......Update:: The Bayfield Garage phoned late this afternoon saying they found a loose/bad connection at the starter and repaired it. We will pick the Jeep up in the morning and maybe I can find out a little more at that time what the problem has been all along.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( An incompetent counterfeiter spent all day making his funny money. At the end of the day, he realizes he spent all his time making $15 bills. He figures that the only way he's going to get anything from this batch of money is to find a place where the people aren't too bright and change his phony money for real cash. He travels to a small town and walks into a small Mom and Pop grocery store. He goes up to the old man behind the counter and asks him, "Do you have change for a $15 bill?" The old man replies, "I sure do...How would you like that? An eight and a seven or two sixes and a three?"
