Another Busy Day…

Today was busy again. I know that David updated everyone that the pacer wires and 1 chest tube were removed today. These are positive steps in my progress. However, he did not tell you what it felt like. Although it did not hurt it was a very weird sensation. The pacer wires felt like strings being pulled from my left shoulders down to my diaphragm and out- like I was a puppet on a string. I felt them the whole way through. So freaking weird!! The chest tube was a little more blunt of a removal and she asked me to hum while she pulled that out. Afterwards there was definitely a feeling of relief. I had to stay on bed rest for an hour while they monitored my vital signs. All in all that went well. I still have a chest tube remaining and they will continue to monitor the drainage until they decide that it is safe to remove. Hopefully soon!!

We also received a lot of important education on post transplant care and safety. This will be a lifestyle change for sure. Things will not be the same but we are learning a lot about the medications that I am on and the side effects. I got my first glucometer home machine!! I will be required to check my blood sugars and give myself insulin when needed. This is due to the new medications. It could be a temporary situation or it may be something that hangs around forever the doctors can not really give me an answer at this time so we will roll with it. I am alive and I will do whatever it takes to keep living!!

I am still so overwhelmed with all of the love and support I have around me. Thank you for everything!

I need to rest...more updates to come. Thank you for joining me on this incredible journey!

Each ❤️beat matters
