Transplant Day 46

 I had my weekly labs today, but won’t get the results until tomorrow. Based on the fact that I have more noticeable hand tremors, I assume my Prograf level is more towards therapeutic than last week. Other than that, my weight is stable, BP is good, and my urine output is still at least 100cc/hour on average.

There is a potential (key word here) treatment for Polycystic Kidney Disease that may involve a drug used to treat Rheumatoid Arthiritis (Enbrel, which I am very familiar with as I work with a Pediatric Rheumatologist). Of course, this is research that has not progressed to humans, so it may be a while to see if it pans out. But it’s a start…

Tonight is a “solstice moon”. This low-hanging moon will appear huge. Hopefully, the sky will be clear enough for you to see this. Explanation here.

I’ll post my labs tomorrow.

    Jeff,

    Thanks for visiting La Marguerite. Your blog is truly inspiring. And I so much appreciate your concern for the greater good in spite of your own not insignificant health struggles. If only the rest of the world was so concerned!

    For a bit of humor, here is the link to my latest post:

    “Tonight is a ‘solstice moon’.” Aw man, I missed it!

    I missed it too. It was too cloudy last night.
