Transplant Day +2

Setting up to play Dominion

The nurse told us the other day that often good things on Rhoads 7 happen slowly, bad things seem to happen fast.  The transplant itself and yesterday were uneventful.  Matt was feeling pretty good yesterday and we had a good day chatting and playing games.  But I can tell today that just as they predicted, he is beginning to feel worse.  Sore mouth, achy bones, especially in his legs and feet. Sleeplessness.

I am so impressed with Matt’s determination and just matter of fact attitude in dealing with this process.  He is quite an amazing guy.  It was more than touching to see the thankfulness that he expressed to Jon this afternoon as Jon left to go back to Virginia.

    Grace, I appreciate the updates that you write. It was great to see both Matt and Lindsay at Leah’s wedding via skype.
