Well I’m growing a new liver.Josh and I are both experiencing coughing which makes us just bend over in pain. Amazing the things that can go on in today’s world. Oh no it’s an announcement going over the intercom ofcode red . That means the family is facing crisis tonight. I’m going to spend some time in prayer right now. .
CODE RED ALL CLEAR! Yay!
I am incoherent so photo …
Remarkable. Miraculous. What wondrous love is this…
Wow and amazing!
It is so cool to see your progress. Couldn’t be any happier for you and your family!
Will keep praying. And checking in with Robin!
Don’t you just hate the drains hanging out of you! Those were my least favorite part. I was so happy the day they took mine out. Glad to hear it was a success! I knew it would be. Perhaps I’ll finally get a chance to meet you and your son at next years Celebration of Life gathering. Hope to see you there!
YAY! Incoherent – who cares it’s YOU.
Glad that they decided to fix your umbilical hernia while they were at it. I had to go back in a month later to get mine fixed. I don’t have a belly button anymore, just a line where it used to be. Your swelling should start to come down over the next couple of weeks.
Biggest thing that surprised me was how skinny my muscle had gotten. It was masked by all of the fluid retention. If you compare the photo of you with your son and the next one down of your face, you can see a remarkable difference in how healthy you look now. You are doing great Scott, and hearing that your son Josh is up and walking around is a really good sign. It looks like from the photo that they cut you about half way through your abdomen. That should help you a lot. I was cut all the way across so lost all control of my abdomen muscles.
One of the things that I had an issue with was the stitches they used to close some of the other incisions they had made. Like the two at my leg arteries and the one in my neck. I had the person removing these and they didn’t get all of them out. I ended up having my transplant team remove them later in their office, but it caused some inflammation and irritation until they were out.
You’re looking good Scott. Now it is just a matter of getting up and walking well and the infamous BM that they want you to have before you leave. What worked the best for me was warmed up prune juice. A nurse suggested it and it was much more effective than the other things they gave me.
I look forward to reading your posts as you experience your new life. God bless you and your family!
Your dad must be so happy!
