Today is the DAY( I hope!!)

B is engrafted and has an immune system that looks great by the numbers. But there have been a few setbacks and the big one now is his not peeing. He’s been on Flomax for the last 2 years but during the transplant, they took him off it and that caused his lack of urinating. The problem is Flomax also lowers BP and he’s on a medication to lower BP so they didn’t want him to tank with extremely low BP.  So now they have him on his normal dose of BP and they are still cathetering him. He was supposed to be released yesterday but still not enough peeing.

It’s also crazy hot in Sacramento, well 103 probably isn’t that hot for Sacto) but it’s the first triple digits of the summer.

The cooler in the RV works fine to a point and that point is about 100 and then it’s not cool cool in here but certainly ok.  Tomorrow it looks like back in the ’90s, so not too bad.

We had the one-time deep clean lady do the house yesterday and my daughter said it looked great. Since I’m not there to do FlyLady zones this works out really well. I kinda wish I could see it though as it would give me an idea of what she might have had done differently.  Anyway, I’m pleased that I did it and will consider it again maybe in 6 months.

I’ve been walking every morning my usual 30 minutes, so that’s nice.

If B gets out today then there will be a clinic/labs appt on Thursday.  I’m still going to push to be allowed to go home though if this first week seems to go well. I just don’t see the point in being here that long when we can drive down here 2-4 days a week as necessary. But I will talk with the doctor on Thursday about it. I’m willing to stay thru next Friday at least.

I guess another option is I go home for a few days and have my daughter/son come to stay. I will look at that option after we know how he’s doing here and there are no surprises.

Well, I’m off to walk for a bit.

  1. So glad B is doing so well, except for the pee issue. How many total days has he been in the hospital, and when was his transplant? So happy his body is responding and engrafting. I remember that from my 2010 SCT. When was your SCT? Amazing what our bodies can handle. And wow, you 2 have been thru so much! Stay cool, it’s crazy CA boiling weather now :(( xoxo
