3 years!

I have been telling myself I was going to update this thing for over a week now!

Last Thursday, March 26 was my three year transplantiversary! I believe this has been the best one yet. The first one was great because I had made it a year, and the second one was as well, because I was feeling more like a normal person again. This year though was awesome because I am completely healthy not only in how I feel but I am beginning to look healthy again.

It was great to have some family and friends over to my parent's house for a cookout on March 22. I love when everyone gets together and has a good time. We had a spread of hamburgers, hot dogs, and all the rest that goes along with a springtime cookout.

It is on days like these that I am really aware of how blessed that I am. God has been so great to my family and me. There were kids running everywhere with mom's chasing after them. My brother's wife is pregnant with their first child and my first niece/nephew. There are a million reasons to be excited and thank God for my many blessings.



I don't know......I just can't seem to find time lately to get on here and update. It has been so long, I doubt anyone even comes here to check up anymore.

Anyways, I am doing well. Had a little scare last November with some rejection. I had a couple other bouts with rejection but this was by far the most troublesome. At one point the doctors thought the PSC had returned. After a biopsy, some IV Solu-medrol (methylprednisolone), and a lot of worrying, it was determined that it had not come back and I was in the clear. Most of that came about because the doctors tried once again to take me off of prednisone.

My body just loves the stuff for some reason even though I hate it. So once again, I am on prednisone and tapering little by little. I am now on 15 mg a day and should be lowered to 10 mg at the end of the month.

I had a lot of people praying for me and I know that that had a lot to do with the outcome. God has been good to me and though I have gone through some tough times, I have never doubted his presence.

It is hard to believe that March 26 will be my three year transplantiversary. Time flies when you are having fun and healthy.

So that is my update for now. I need to try this more......I forget just how therapeutic it is for me to write these things down from time to time. It seems so easy for me to let life get in the way.
