Please Help Get a Transplant For Tony!

On February 19, 2018, less than two months after his father passed, my husband Tony received a call that we never expected and that would change his and our family’s lives forever. It was his doctor calling to tell him he has liver cancer! In addition to treatment, he is also in need of a liver transplant.

Today is 4/15/2019, and Tony and I not long ago got home from his first appointment with his liver specialist since his transplant on 3/6/2019.

As always, he received a good report. However, there is an issue with his kidneys–they are okay but not as good as they used to be because of the surgery (transplant). To hopefully remedy this, the specialist may at a later time change one of his anti-rejection meds to a different one.

He cannot yet return to work and still has some restrictions regarding lifting, exercising and stretching. He will continue to go once a week for labs. His next appointment and MRI will be in mid June.

Thank you all again so very much for your ongoing prayers, love, support and encouragement!!!

Love,
The Billings Family πŸ™‚

Today is April 9, 2019. Last week, Tony’s lab visits were reduced from twice a week to once a week. We went this morning. His Prograf (one of his anti-rejection meds) level was high again so they reduced his dosage again. He is still doing very well πŸ™‚ !

I just responded to several lovely guestbook messages. Oh, they so touched my heart!!! We are so blessed to have all of you!!!

Love,
The Billings Family πŸ™‚
