Back Home

Patty and Sarah arrived home early this afternoon. It's easy to tell that Sarah really misses being home. Aside from the fact she loves her siblings dearly, and vice versa, she is all smiles and laughter. Of course, she is normally happy but these last couple visits to the hospital have been a little more trying for her. She's not crazy about all the poking anymore and she gets very restless in her room.

Her tacrolimus has been raised to the highest point since started on it. She gets 2 mg in the AM and 1.5 in the evening. This means her immune system will be even further "asleep" and she will be more susceptible to catching even simple colds. So, we will have to make sure she doesn't get around a lot of folks who are actively ill. This whole dance is a delicate balance between protecting the liver and keeping her from getting sick. It's a rollercoaster without the fun, but just as much excitement.

Thanks for your continued prayers. It would be nice to not have any rejection episodes for a few months.
