In fact, 2 people passed the hospital's medical testing within the last week. This is fantastic! I have spoken with both people, and they are fully committed to going ahead with the donation. I now am working with the hospital on timing of the operation. This also depends on the donor's life circumstances, so as yet we are not sure when it will be. They need to arrange their family and work situations to be at a point where they can stay in New York for several weeks.
It's amazing, I feel very lucky to have had the response I did, and to be left with two people who can and would donate. I know so many people do not have this luck, and I am so appreciative of what you all have done to help me.
I will let you know as soon as I know the predicted surgery date.
