Ya know what? I just realized something. Despite the pains of healing from my transplant … I haven’t felt this good in a year – alert, sharp, some energy.
For the past year I have just felt “sick” all the time. I don’t feel sick now … I feel very sore, weak, uncomfortable and tired but not sick. It’s very different. It’s good.
Tomorrow Robin will take me back to Lahey for my weekly check. Please pray that my blood tests will show that my new liver is healthy, functioning well and growing. Each month that passes is a milestone and represents a reduction of risk.
Pray that my body welcomes my new liver and gives it no fight.
I’m nervous about tomorrow and am hoping for great reports. That would be swell.
Two long walks today, ate real food and napped a few hours. One dose of pain med more than 12 hours ago. That’s good!
My sister Gail sent me a text – “A month ago you were dying! Now look at you.” She gave me a good pep talk to get me up and walking and pushing myself.
The battle will continue for months. It’s a lot of work and I expect the pain but I know that my Jesus is boosting me and your prayers are giving me fuel.
