Final BlancheNoE update,... the next she can do herself

Howdy Folks

Greetings from Not Europe

    I am relieved.

   BlancheNoE was prowling the halls today. Prevented from doing cartwheels simply because the drip could not keep up. She only has one tube left, going into her neck, which is also my personal favorite because it leaves your hands free and doesn’t get so tangled in the bed sheets and as an added bonus, doesn’t hurt, like the one on top of the hand.

   She had the last wound drain removed. It leaked enough to warrant a stitch and as the Doctor prepared the needle with the local anesthetic, Blanche had nothing better to do than to glare at him and say,

   “This better not leave a scar!”

   I could see her out on Monday. That would mean, in and out in a week. 

   Which has me thinking about all the positive energy you folks have been sending our way. I kept her posted by printing out your comments and bringing them to her.

   We are looking forward to being with Ruth. 

   Which again has me thinking about all the positive energy you folks have been sending our way. I’d personally like to thank all of you for what it did for me. I find your messages very reassuring and uplifting. I don’t feel alone in my struggle and this I can convert into strength. Thank you all.

There are such things as miracles! You and Amy are in my continuing thoughts and prayers, and Ruth, you are doing a wonderful thing, truly a great friend.

I laughed a little over the "better not leave a scar" remark, and its just really great to hear that all is going well and that Amy is up and moving and has her spirits up!  How wonderful to have Ruth out there with you!  Keeping you both in my thoughts!

I'm sorry that I've been incommunicado for the last three days and unable to continue a stream of good wishes through words, but you two have been in my thoughts the whole time. I had a strong feeling at this time last year that the transplant was going to happen for Amy this year. I'm glad she's coming home--hospitals are wonderful for treatment, but lousy places to heal!

Amy's got a new liver.  

Amy's gonna kick ass in a future Adams flick.

Amy's gonna be a rock star healthcare advocate and fight the good fight for those who still suffer.

Amy's gonna honor the person whose liver she got- She's gonna make it count.

Amy's gonna live without that pain and that cloud following her around.  

Amy's gonna sing again.
