Ted was allowed a weekend pass home. He was very happy about that. I see glimpses of energy here and there, it does last long at this time.
This s the shuttle that comes for us at the apartment near the hospital and takes us to appointments. Such a handy transportation.
This is a poster at the bone marrow clinic in the hospital. The picture is of Dr.Anand Tandra, Ted's doctor. He is one of four in this group. All are so smart and truly caring.
When Ted has to take more pills than ever in his life and the pill holders are not near big enough. So I just used a big picnic paper plate to hold his meds for each day. There's morning, afternoon, evening and bedtime. I have read named the sections a couple times. I will have to get a bigger holder. This is time consuming and that is because I double check . All the long twisted names of meds, confusing...and some drs. use the product name .
Near the last two days of Ted's hospital stay after a big rain, there was a rainbow ...I took it as a sign of great hope.
Then that evening there was a beautiful full moon. A day later, we transferred to the out of hospital housing. So near by and helpful. This is all paid for by donations. I think this will be one of our favorite charities.
This is our other one, Cystic Fibrous Foundation. Today is a walk for our great grandson Luke. I was sure hoping to be able to join everyone, but it just didn't work out. Luke's aunt made up T-shirts to help raise money. It did raise hundreds of dollars. How wonderful. Please pray for the children.
Ted will have two more appointments this coming week. Then I think we will be allowed to return home . He will have weekly appointments, then it will be monthly. Ted has done amazingly well with this transplant. It is a long process ...lots of tests and meds. He has to shower daily , take care of his dental hygiene, and always be on the look out for anything different occurring with his body. The doctors are happy with the results. I am so thankful to all of you for prayers and well wishes. Thankful God has shown us mercy and love. XO
