Angel Update

Angel got a call from his doctor as we were leaving for dance class. 

  • It is not Wilson's Disease
  • They found antibody's that suggest celiac
  • They want to do a biopsy on the intestines
  • During the biopsy they will also repeat the banding of the esophagus
  • His meld score is sticking around 17 (good score is 5-15 which means good outcome for a transplant.)
  • 17 is a gray area
  • They are talking about pushing for a liver transplant as soon as celiac is confirmed.
