    Thinking ahead... heart transplant

    I just found out that someone I know is staying in the hospital until they can get a heart transplant... let’s call them B. B is a close relative of one of my best friends so I don’t have all the info on B’s condition. But since B is being kept at the hospital, B’s condition must be dire and I’m not sure if B will get a heart in time.

    My question: How often do these stories end well? I know the transplant list is long and heart transplant is a risky surgery... Do I need to be prepared to travel (soon) for a funeral? My friend is a little withdrawn to the whole situation and I’m a little afraid to ask direct questions so I hope you’ll pardon my not knowing details.
