It has been a crazy ride this year but we made it!...I can not thank each and everyone of you enough for the support you have given myself and family this year. You all have truly been a blessing. I am home still recovering from this transplant. I feel very good most of the time. I breath unbelievably now. I have gotten some color back to my skin and am back up to 175 ILBS. from 135 after the surgery. I take over 40 pills and caspsules combined each day. I am on a higher dose of prograf so the swelling in my face is still pretty obvious. The biggest challenge for me at the moment is living with a suppressed Immune system and dealing with the combined side effects of all this medication. it can be unpredictable at times but its keeping me alive! LOL.....I pray and hope that each one of you have a fantastic year in 2012. I appreciate every one of you! THANK YOU!!! Mike D.
