The Lord is real. I received a call on the 24th of May, Memorial Day week-end from the transplant team. They wanted me at Duke Medical ASAP. Made it there with the help of Mr. Tony (good guy). Every thing matched and they had a green light. The operation went well, I was up and walking around in two days with help. I was released on June 2nd to stay in the Durham area not able to return to Winston Salem (home) yet. Was able to shower, dress myself and feed myself. Took a 10-15 minute walk 3 times a day. On June 12 they released me to come back to Winston Salem.(home)
After being home for only four days I had blood work done and it was not what they wanted to see. Back in the hospital for another week. My blood count was way too low. They got it up and I'm back home. I have been cleared to drive and walk a mile on flat surfaces. I can also live by myself, have blood work done weekly and make all my appointments. It's a long road back but with time and prayer with a good support system in place it can be done.
Thank you to my family and friends who are there when you think you are alone, you are not. (Jesus is always there.) Just pray and ask and the door will open. That's what I believe and I'm sticking to it!!
It's not over so please I still have to make that goal, so give any little amount to help me reach that goal. The first year is the most important one and where if things can go wrong, it's more likely this is when it will take place.
