wow, i am so sorry Katherine!! your family is going through a lot and i am sure it is taking a tremendous toll on all of you... i will be praying hard for you all! you said your father is too old for a regular transplant... i am not sure how old that makes him, but my father is very old for having a daughter of my age (he is 81). i know from experience that it complicates things THAT much more. my thoughts are with you!
