Here is a long overdue update on Alvin Wilson. Basically, he is rapidly healing without any complications. He had a stint removed that was placed during his liver transplant. The doctors have said he can start lifting items, but nothing too heavy (NO ENGINES). He will probably be cleared to go to church and other public places at his next doctor’s appointment on June 9th. We are thankful for all the prayers and generous support. We continue to be in awe at his successful recovery! Doctors are adjusting his medication on a weekly basis based on his lab results.

We have had a little caretaker reversal the last couple of months. I have had some medical issues and I had a minor surgery four weeks ago which was unsuccessful. On Tuesday, May 17th, I had a hysterectomy and Al has been my caretaker. He has been at my side for all my surgical procedures. I’m pretty sure that he still owes me bedside time. He has been a great help and I am thankful he has been able to help me! I’m thankful that I was well enough to return to work within a week of my surgery.

Alvin Wilson had a great check up from his transplant clinic appointment. The doctor reduced the amount of prednisone he needs to take and he no longer needs to be on a high protein diet. Al is very happy that the doctor decided to let him drive, which is two weeks earlier than most liver transplant patients. He still has to take an easy and cannot lift anything heavier than a phonebook, and he has to stay away from crowds. He has been blessed not to have any infections during this weakened state of his immune system. Al is very thankful for all the support he has received from friends and loved ones.
