Transplant Day 13

Today was a little bit better. Doc's heart went back to normal during the night. Praise the Lord!! I am very thankful for that. His counts are still at zero though. The doctor was just in again and he said that it will still be a few days, but once they do start to go back up Doc will start to feel better. He is going to need blood tonight and platelets, because both are low. His kidneys are a little better today, but his liver is a little worse. Once again he has slept most of the day I guess he still needs the extra rest. I know it is hard for him to get much sleep when they keep coming into the room for one thing or another. I know that is necessary, but as everyone knows it is very hard to get much rest.

My Mom came into town today to help out some at home and to give our good friends the Retzers a break. It will be good for Michael to visit with her some. He has been such a great help with all of the things he is doing at home. I also don't want to forget to mention that Kim and Jeremy have been doing a lot for us too. I don't know what we would do going though all of this without God, good friends and family.

Doc did stay awake long enough to read his cards that were delivered to the hospital and then Jeremy brought some when he brought our mail yesterday. He really enjoyed reading them. I have had to tell him about the blog since he can not type right now (his hands are one big Kerlix wrap). I know he enjoys listening to the comments. With God's healing hands he should be better soon. Please continue to keep him in your prayers.
