Week 7 and No Rejection!!

Well, we got the pathology results back from Jim’s bronch. NO REJECTION!!!! Awesome, awesome news! His Prograf level is at 5.6 so they are going to bump his dosage up to 2 mgs again. Monday the 12th will be Jim’s last day of PT and RT, they released him early. This means that we will only have to go to Penn on the days that the doctor or nurse practitioner wants to see him. The nurse practitioner said probably monthly unless something comes up. They are allowing him to get his blood work and CXR’s done locally as well. We will be touching base with them weekly between doctor visits. It’s hard to believe that it’s only been 7 weeks and things are starting to settle down. The only obstacle at this point is the gastroparesis. Other than that *fingers crossed* things are going well!

  2. It is so wonderful for both of you. God bless all those who donate their organs and God bless the medical practitioners who chose to put their God given talents to medicine. I hope all continues to go well.
