Well it has been a very eventful week. The title says it all. Alan and I came home on Thursday - 10 days after transplant. He is doing wonderfully well. I think he was doing so well and aggravating everyone that they kicked him out. LOL
WE had the first Biopsy on the new heart on Wednesday before we left - got the call Friday that everything is A-OK. We go back in on Tuesday for the next biopsy and then the Monday following. Every week for the next 6 months we have to either go for blood work or biopsy's. Then we can start to taper off. Luckily when it is just a blood work week we can have that done here and not have to drive 2+ hours to the hospital.
I am looking at the hospital trips as little get aways with my honey - We have to be there at 7am so we are going to go up the night before and stay at a hotel.
It has been a little weird adjusting to a silent Alan. In case you wonder about that statement when he had the LVAD there was a continous pumping going on which you could hear from a ways away. Upside is that I don't have to have the TV quite so loud.
Well I am feeling decidely crafty today. Spent today doing some splitcoast surfing. joined a swap and the joined a blogger group. See my new blogger friends blogs. i haven't made it all the way through but what I have seen there are some very talented people out there. Only hope my little creations will stand up. But hey I enjoy it so that is what matters.
Well off to craft and maybe tomorrow I will have pictures to post.
