It has been a long hard year for Scott and our family, and it has been a long time since I have updated Scott’s progress. The past year has been very trying for his recovery. It has turned out to be one hurdle after another. His medication for non-rejection did not agree with his system causing rashes, soreness of the mouth to the extent he could not eat, and acne. His Doctors started trying various other anti-rejection medications. One med caused his red blood cells count to go down dangerously low.
Scott contracted shingles but luckily they caught it early enough that the medicine to clear up shingles worked well and they were cleared up in two weeks rather than lasting several months.
Scott came down with a bad cold which put him back in the hospital for a couple of days to prevent pneumonia. His oxygen saturation went back down to the middle and low 80’s causing him to go back on oxygen and he had high blood pressure.
After being released from the hospital, he has continued to use his oxygen only at night. The doctors had him come into the hospital two days in a row for 4-6 hour IV drip to help his anti-rejection drugs. It seems to have worked,as it lowered his blood pressure, and increased his oxygen saturation back into the 90’s.
In October Scott has developed a stomach ache and nausea almost constantly. It makes food undesirable and he has lost a few pounds. Last week, he went to an orthapedic surgeon as he moved wrong and caused excruciating pain in his upper leg and hip. As of December 1st, 2018 he will have to have a hip replacement. The hip has totally deteriated and is ready to collapse…
Hopefully, he will be able to heal fast and have some quality, pain free time soon. He is a trooper and takes everything in stride, but he is getting weary and wants to have some relief. He will soon be the bionic man with all new body parts. Please send some much needed prayers. God Bless!

Scott has been healing day by day, however, there was a bump in the road on Monday, October 30, 2017. He had appointments at the hospital for labs, x-rays, PTF’s, and his regular visit with the “Lung Transplant Team.” Everything checked out alright. On the way home from the hospital, Scott got a pain in his abdomen, which kept getting worse and worse until he could no longer stand the pain and we were off to the hospital and emergency. After tests, x-rays, ultra sounds,etc it was diagnosed as an ” angry pancreas” caused by gall stones. On Wednesday, November 1st they removed his gall bladder. He was released from the hospital on Thursday, November 2nd.
Scott has had enough surgeries and hopefully he is done. He has had more than his share, but he never ceases to amaze me….He takes everything in stride and doesn’t complain. In fact, I am the one who is having a nervous breakdown!(figuratively speaking).
SCOTT, YOU ARE AMAZING, AND I LOVE YOU!!!
Your wife, Regie Oman
