As you all know Rob is battling liver disease, We are really trying to stay positive. Rob has been in out of the hospital three times this month alone. We have been going to Indianapolis for about a year now, we are just 30lbs from being on the list. Rob has lost a lot of weight in the past couple of years, but is having difficulty getting to that magic number of 240. And a lot of it has to do with the water he keeps retaining do to the liver and kidney issues, they have already tapped him once this month and pulled almost 5 liters off of him. Now our doctor here is reaching out to the University of Chicago, they would be able to take him at his current weight, but we have start the process all over with them. Which is fine but, we are dealing with larger pool of recipients. I have talked with Indy and they are fine with him being on more than one list, but we are unsure if UOC will be the same, since it is up to the hospital if they can be on more than one list. 
   It has been very difficult for both of us, Rob is very depressed and could use words of encouragement. Please keep us in your prayers.
