I’m overwhelmed by the response my last post got. I have a bunch of good leads for people with mono in the area. I’m sorting through all the messages and will follow-up with people soon. Thank you, again!
I got the transplant! Yay! I'm out of the hospital. Things are going okay. I got an opportunistic infection in the hospital, but antibiotics seem to be handling it. We're having some trouble getting the drug level for my anti-rejection meds to stabilize, so one day I might feel fine (when the level and dose are both reason), then the next day the level might be out of wack (if it is too high, I'll be utterly exhausted), and if the level is too low, we'll increase my dose (which causes nausea). For now, I'm going to the outpatient clinic every morning (including weekends). Once we get things under control, I'll be able to start using home care for lab work. That'll be nice.
Christi, my donor, generally seems to be doing well.
Dialysis is over! I haven't had a treatment since 4/15. Good riddance! I do miss the staff at the center, though; they were really nice.
