After yesterday's blog, which I thought long hard about posting since it was so personal, I've decided to share a bit of good news that we received from the liver specialist. Good news is all too rare these days. My daughter's blood work shows a tiny bit of improvement. There's actually a little healing going on with her liver, which is reducing her MELD score -- a number based on blood work results used to determine a statistical rate of morality for people with her disease who may or may not need a transplant. This means her chances of surviving are getting a bit better. The doctor remains highly cautious but was happy to report the unexpected improvement. It was such welcome and needed news on our end!
Thanks Jane, for your blog comment yesterday. :)

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.

What greater atrocity is there on this planet than to sell a human life and brutally force him or her into a life in the sex trade or endless labor?
And how dare we abuse, kill and traffic animals in the name of profit... in the name of anything for any reason!
