Saturday 5-28-11 Day +4

I’m BAAACK  !!!  Seriously…I went somewhere down in a deep hole and it took quite a bit of climbing to see the light again!  It is all of your loving, encouraging comments that give me the strength!  You will never know how much I appreciate each and every one!  You truly make me feel encouraged and loved!  Dr. Jones told me this morning that my tacrolimus (anti-rejection drug) is causing the headaches.  It causes inflammation of that barrier lining in your brain around your cerebral cortex, and this shows up on the MRI.  I am now off the tacrolimus and will get on cyclosporine at 8:00 tonight.  So that should get rid of the headaches.  I can’t be on tylenol any longer for fear of liver damage.   Other than all that I am feeling alot better.  Lungs are improved, no fever, and only occasional vomiting.  I really don’t enjoy talking publicly about diarrhea, but that is gone now too!  YAY!!!  Still have hair!  Still can’t eat!  My last real food was 5 days ago! I eat a few popsickles here and there, and some saltines, and jello.  One thing I really like is ginger ale and orange gatorade!  Wade has learned never to mention food…one morning he was talking about coffee and it instantly made me throw up!  Just the thought of it.  I am so much better because I can actually blog about that incident now!  I’ve been able to walk around the unit a couple of times today, another big step!  Bye for now, and again thanks from the bottom of my heart for all of your encouragement, love, and prayers!   Holly
