Fighting the good fight, time marches on… October 5, 2013Posted by Stella☆LunaC in Mike's Big Adventure in Liver Transplant.
I sit here with a nasty flu bug, UGH! I find myself wondering how long Mike’s recovery will take. It has been 6 weeks since his liver transplant, seems like an eternity…
Mike has faced a couple recent setbacks and has come out the other side, only to face yet more challenges. His latest challenge seems to be the most tenacious. He has been put in an isolated environment for 30 days until the danger is past.The barrage of antibiotics, steroids and other meds are also contributing to his slowed progress, and they keep assuring us he will come out of this, this is completely normal progress, we just have to be patient.
There will be a meeting with the Drs, hospital staff and family about continued healthcare plans, long range objectives and goals. We hope to have a clearer picture then.
What a struggle this has been for us all! Mike is worn out and tired of it all, but he’s actually making progress, even if he doesn’t see it. We will continue to be there for him; he has come so far and the end is on the horizon!
