Topic: Hi All!
Thank you Lisa for posting for me! It has been a wild few days for my family. I got my transplant on 7-9.
I am doing good for the most part! Surgery went good, and I only needed 4 units of blood, that is almost unheard of with cancer patients. I was only on the vent for 3 hours! The doctors were so surprised at how well my body did.
I got my NG tube out yesterday, so my noise feels alot better. I don't have any swelling or jaundice, my liver functions are a little high, but they say this is normal after transplant.
Right now the only things I'm dealing with are: normal pain of surgery, I have a few leaky places (but they haven't leaked tonight !!), and of corse getting my bowels in working order again.
I got to meet my donor yesterday, he is such a sweet sweet man, He was doing well from his surgery as well!!!
Thank you all for your prayers, thoughts, and hugs! Keep them coming! I should be moving into my apartment in the next few days, boy an I ready to get out of this hospital!!
Love to you all!!
