For those who haven't heard, Haley was released from the hospital on October 9th and we could not be more excited. She is living in a hotel near the hospital and will stay there for a few weeks until she signs a new lease in downtown Indy.
She's been doing very well--growing stronger everyday. She attends physical therapy 3 times each week, which has helped to regain her strength and stamina. She also visits the hospital 2 times each week for labs and checkups with her surgeons.
In terms of nutrition, Haley is back to a regular diet--eating everything from Doritos, to grapes, to chicken-pot-pie. She's finally stopped losing weight, and is hoping regain some in the coming weeks.
Thanks again for all the support--the many well-wishes and prayers have worked.

The last couple of weeks have been filled with ups and downs in regards to Haley's recovery. Since Haley's transplant surgery, she has had to undergo a couple of additional surgeries. The main issue post-surgery has been dealing with her blood disease and finding that fine line between how thin of blood is too thin, and how thick is too thick. In the two post-transplant surgeries Haley has undergone, the doctors have had to remove two rather large hematomas that had developed due to slow seeping blood into her abdominal area. Most recently, Haley has developed several small blood clots (right arm and lungs) due to her blood being too thick after it was decided to reduce her blood thinners after her last hematoma was removed. Haley's blood has been thinned once again and the clots should be dissolved naturally with time. We are confident in the doctors here and know they will get this delicate balance worked out. We were told that there would undoubtedly be bumps along the way to recovery, and we are hoping that this is the last of them. The important thing is that the transplanted organs are functioning, and her blood numbers look good. Haley is on the right trajectory and her spirits remain strong. She is going above and beyond doing all she can do to ensure she has a successful recovery ( and to no ones surprise she is a nurse favorite). Please continue to keep Haley and her family in your thoughts and prayers. We appreciate all of your support and letters of encouragement! Here's to getting Haley out of the hospital and on the way to this being a memory!

Most of you have heard the surgery went even better than expected. The donor organs were exceptionally healthy, much less blood was lost than anticipated and the team was finished within 6 hours....

This one just wasn't meant to be. While I'm glad the surgeons will only accept pristine organs I was pretty disappointed to be sent home. Thanks for all the prayers yesterday, fingers crossed for a...
