Happy Birthday Kath! Happy Birthday yesterday to Diana and tomorrow Mark! Last week it was Skip and this Friday Kinsey!
When Dale went for his labs this morning we had a talk with our doc. So far the biggest problems Dale has had with this transplant have had to do with medication and it seems to us that they are very aggressive and whenever they make an aggressive change it sets us back. We would like them to be a little more careful about those changes. The doc today said that evidently his system is very sensitive to the medications so I think they are getting the idea.
His creatinine was down to 2.6 but his potassium was way too high so they gave him some medicine for that. Some of the numbers are looking very good but others are a little slow. They are telling us that it is just his body getting used to this new kidney and that it will be better. The high prograf levels from the day before yesterday still have him feeling bad so we didn’t do much today. Plus it is pretty cold! We are really ready to come home. Hopefully we can come for a few days at Christmas. I think it would do us both a lot of good that and his potassium coming down so he could eat a few more things!
