Transplant Day(continued)

We were able to peek in on Josh in recovery around 3pm. Although heavily medicated when he came to, trying to keep his eyes opened, he kidded the nurse about if they did the Tommy John surgery on his elbow. What-No? How about making my scar look like a shark bite? What-No? Mom Robin was sporting a Cheshire cat grin because Josh was using one eye to peep out at us. Apparently Josh’s normal baby behavior when trying to keep from falling asleep. The rest of us thought he was just playing pirate. Like father like son, constantly kidding and putting everyone at ease while he himself is in pain. The visit was short because dreamland kept calling his name.

Dr Pomposelli came in around 4pm to say Scott’s transplant was done and would be moved to recovery within the hour and then ready for visitors. It would 6:30 before we could finally check in on him. His surgery was a bit more intensive than expected due to the 50/50 lobe size of Josh’s liver and the double(not single)bile ducts,it was Scott coming out from under that caused the longer wait. Upon hearing Robin’s and his children’s voice Scott came to with barely opened eyes and a smirk on his lips. Almost in recognition he had made it through and for him, his family and friends tomorrow would be a NEW day and a new chance at a normal life.

    You will very much enjoy those bile ducts. I have had bile duct issues since I was 4 years old and every time they fix the issue, I feel so very much better. I am so happy for both of you!
