Transplant Day +15

Hey all,

Life is beginning to feel as though it is returning to normal (touching wood of course).  The sun is shining outside. Evan went to work this morning. And Logan is feeling good. The doc, this morning, said that Logan's white cell count is up to 1.5, and his neutraphils are up to 0.93 as well as loosing 1cm around his girth and about a kilo in weight (fluid).  They are happy.  His diabetes, however, continues to confuse them, as he is no longer using the steroids that affect him, so they are unsure why his blood sugars are continuously high.  We are having to give long and short acting insulin at the moment to help to keep him in check. His blood pressure is still rather high (due to the retention they think), so he is still on meds to help him pee, and blood pressure meds to assist with that.  He takes potassium and magnesium and GCSF and panadol and tramadol and this and that and the other... as well as his bottle feed, which they have reduced to help with the fluid retention.  He usually drinks at least 1 ltr per day anyways. But he just keeps on keeping on... case in point, he sleeps right now (2pm).

I hope my blog finds you and yours well... We look forward to seeing you all soon,

Take care
