These pictures were taken during our departure in the Philippines and arrival in Taiwan.Then our precious bonding time with baby Job in about a week before the surgery.
This is the day we're waiting for,the day that we would finally fly to Taiwan for Job's operation. April 20,2011 at 10:30 am, we boarded China Airlines and arrived in Kaohsiung at 12:3opm. Baby Job was just asleep the whole trip. We went directly to our rented apartment located within the vicinity of Chang Gung Memorial Hospital. Then later that afternoon, Job and Sweet were admitted already for final living donor work-up. Our room was located at 10th flr (Liver Transplant Ward), Room F13 at the Children's building. All the screening tests and diagnostics test have to be repeated using the hospital's facilities to ensure safety and reliability. It took about one week to finish all the test for the recipient and the donor liver compatibility. Blood extraction, X-rays,ultrasound, 2 dECHO, CT Scan, MRI, Vaccination, psychology test etc etc., were done to us. The hospital facilities were much more advanced and high end.
On April 25,2011, Monday. The Transplant team had their final study and conference of our case and confirmed the schedule of operation on Thursday. Baby Job were given pre-operative medications before the surgery and both of us had fasting the night of the surgery. On the 28th of April, Thursday 8:00 am, will be the moment that God has set before us."Would I believe you when you would say, your hand will guide my every way. Will I recieve the words you say every moment of every day. Help me to win my endless fears. You've been so faithful for all my years. With one breath You make me new, Your grace covers all i do. Well, I will walk by faith even when I cannot see, well because this broken road prepares Your WILL for me."
