Ten for Tueday

Well, today is Tuesday. This past week has been crazy, I may need more than 10 lines!!

1. My bf had a kidney transplant last Tuesday. Was released Saturday. Doing great.

2. We are now a walking pharmacy. He's on 16 different medications, everything from anti-fungals to anti-rejection to blood pressure meds. We have a pill box for everyday and have a list of meds and check them off as they go in the box. Yep. a bit overwhelming.

3. He has to get blood drawn twice a week for awhile to make sure he has enough anti-rejection meds in his system and to make sure the new baby is alive and kicking.

4. More than ever now I support organ donation. This transplant will let him have more of a 'normal' life.

5. I saw a little girl at the hospital yesterday who was a kidney transplant recipient. She must have been about 8 years old. Her mom looked really tired.

6. My daughter graduated from 5th grade last week. The school had a ceremony for them. I cried.

7. I am a bit behind with shipping for my shops. Thank goodness I don't have a lot of orders. Will be catching up today for sure. The rest of the week will be busy as well.

8. My mom had a test done last week that showed she has a hole in her bladder. I think it's from the radiation treatments she had a few years ago for her cancer. She had to go back on chemo treatments last month.

9. Cancer sucks.

10. As for me, no stress... :)

Congratulations to your friend who rec'd the transplant! Prayers for his success with it and to the 8 year old girl too.

Congratulations on your daughter's graduated 5th grade. Wait til she graduates high school! There will be serious tears then!

Hope your mother gets her bladder repaired, a.s.a.p.

Cancer does suck!

No stress??? :-)

Congrats on the successful transplant. A friend of mine had a liver transplant many years ago, she is doing well. Hope the same for your bf!!
