Well,it feels great to be back home !!! I was overwhelmed with all the cards and gifts and thoughts and prayers I rec'd from all of you and friends and family!!!
I am blessed to have all of you thinking of me!!
This first pic is the firs time i got to go outside,it was around 2 weeks into the journey. The black and bruised neck was from all the tape they had taken off from holding the tubes. It is nice now,but sure took a while to go away! But that's a small price to pay for getting a great new liver!
And this 2nd pic is the day I'm going home!!! Waiting for the plane,in total from surgery starting on July 30th at 7:30 pm and ending July 31st at 5:30 am until leaving to come home on Aug 24th. I think I did pretty good! The doctors are impressed with my bloodwork and my recovery and so am I,lol!!! I new I was ready and with all your comments when i was down,has helped me go through the rough periods.
It was funny cause when they wheeled me in the OR and the nursed took my blood pressure,the dr. asked me if i was ok,I said ya why? He says you BP is normal,aren't you nervous? I said nope,I've been waiting and am ready for this for so long,let's do it!!!!!
Then I had some internal bleeding,but then they fixed that up and i've been doing great since!
So now,I do exactly what they told me to do and so far so good,my body is accepting this new liver with flying colors! I Thank my DONOR many times a day and his or her family. As I am Happy to rec the gift of life they are grieving the loss of their loved one. I have a hard time with that,but that is what the donor wanted and with that said I'm sure he saved many lives!
I don't know when I'll be able to make cards,I have the tremors big time and hope they will go away soon so I can play. I miss you guys terribly and will try to visit a few each day!!!
Thanks again for everything,without all the prayers and positive vibes I would probably still be there,so Thank You Very Much!!
My new mono...ENJOY LIFE!!!!
