A brief update:
Josh and I just had our one month follow up appointments at Lahey and everything looks great!
Josh is nearing being cleared to do whatever he wants. He’s a popular guy among the staff.
All of my numbers are within the range of normal, healthy livers. That’s amazing.
I’m pretty dried out which is probably causing my nausea so they took me off lasix. I also have 2 less medications to take.
I still have a Jackson Pratt drain in. It’s a nuisance but I can manage. Maybe they will pull it next week.
While Robin and I were waiting for Josh something pretty cool happened. A woman named Ann and her family came over and introduced themselves. Ann is going to have her transplant at Lahey with her daughter as her living donor. Ann and I connected through my blog. Weird huh? I guess this little old blog of random ramblings is making a difference for some after all.
Ann told me that Josh and I should write books. Hmmm … I wonder what I’d write about. “Larry and the Lucky Liver Lover Band?” Maybe not…
I am so excited for Ann! I’m praying that everything comes together perfectly for she and her beautiful daughter.
This liver deal has given me a bunch of new friends. I like that.
