Today is ASCT +21.

Today, I had my scheduled appointment with Krishna, my transplant MD, and Pepita, one of his Nurse Practitioners.

Suffice to say I did not get much of what I wanted, which was an OK for me to return to work on a part time basis tomorrow. I really amped up the reasons to say yes, so much so that Krishna said “I can’t believe that I’m having this conversation at only day +21!” But I do have agreement that I can return part time in 2 weeks. I may also return to church this Sunday, provided I sit by myself and avoid the “huggers” so I can stay otherwise healthy. Praise be to God!

Besides lack of food, I also tire quickly, even 5 steps at normal pace can leave me gasping for air. Believe it or not, this is also ‘normal’.

This whole process makes me feel like I fell down into a rabbit hole, and I can’t remember which pill I took last – I’ve had so many.

Thank you all so much for your prayers. They continue to work each day I get closer to the end.

Thank you, Lord Jesus, for my healing, and thank you for the healing received by others for whom we pray, Pia, Herma, Berris, Sylvia, Nicola, Barbara, Frank, Mike, and Joe.

Amen.
