Today is day 8. It’s been just over a week since I got my sister’s cells! Over all I’m doing well… the days are long and I’m nauseous and anxious, but things are moving in the right direction. Yesterday I got the frightening news that my liver labs were looking a little abnormal, but today they are looking better. The new thing today is high blood pressure. This is somewhat expected from the anti rejection meds I’m on, but it’s still not fun to see 180/110.
Doing some yoga while getting platelets (I do clean the floor before setting my mat down!)
The kiddos have been enjoying the costume bin today. Mike sent me these to brighten my day.
My mom captured a favorite game I like to call “Get those kids”… although it looks more like a version called “Get Dad”.
- My anxiety would melt away
- Mike would feel better quickly- he had a fever yesterday and of course, won’t be visiting me for a while!
- That I wouldn’t get sick
- That Erica’s cells would engraft beautifully and quickly, giving me good white blood cells to keep me safe, good platelets and red blood cells!
- For time to pass quickly
Thank you SO much for all your prayers! God is listening!!!
