feeling better

Postby amanda in CA » Sat May 08, 2004 6:31 pm

Hi, after the initial disappointment of finding my dad can't donate (I always thought that it was a long shot anyway because of his age), I'm feeling a lot more optimistic. I have asked my auntie on my mum's side if she will consider being tested although I haven't had a reply as yet.

We had another bit of cheering up news - Steve has won a plasma tv, must be the first time that we've ever won anything (well not counting my last transplant and I would count that as winning!).

Steve's parents are coming over to see us again, it was decided and arranged on Thursday which is good because I have to go and get and umbilical hernia repaired on Friday. It's being done under local but I will be nil by mouth until I get bowel sounds (no birthday cake for me that day!) and it will still hurt! I won't be able to do PD for 72 hours and then only small, regular fills which will be a bit of a nuisance, so I will probably feel bit ropey by the end of that time. Fortunately it's only a small one but I hate the sight of it already and really don't want to leave it to get bigger.

hope you'll think of me, amanda

Good luck with your Auntie and the hernia - I'm sure it will go fine :)

Well done on the TV. If you decide its just too big and don't want it, send it over!

Take care, will be thinking of you,
