Stats: (from Monday’s clinic visit)
Kidney and liver: normal
Donor cells: 100% (checked again last week)
Everything is heading in the right direction. Exactly 48 days ago, all the above numbers pertaining to his immune system were non-existent. It’s amazing to see those numbers. It’s only been 48 days, but the dreadful days of pre-transplant days seem ages ago. It’s funny how my memory works… as soon as I see the light at the end of the tunnel, all the pain and fear seem to dissipate. A distant, hazy memory. Of course all is not perfect and there are memories of those days that are etched in my heart. Some images, some experiences, some emotions, I will never forget. But to have come this far, is amazing. I think of the future with hopeful delight. Things I want to do with Timothy… I get giddy that I am allowed to hope this way. Thank you, Lord for this hope.
Clinic again tomorrow.
