Having nothing to do all day, no vitals, no round the clock care, and no interruptions has been great. Today was filled with rest, reading, watching Gilligan's Island and Full House, planning meals and making a grocery list.
Here's a picture tour of our new accommodations. As wonderful as they are, we are still praying this will be a brief stop in this journey.
How Elena and Liv had to see each other before
How they were last night!!
Elena spent part of today working on a craft project.
A corner of the kitchen has become the medicine corner. Most of Elena's pills are taken at 10 am and 10 pm each day.
Here is a picture of Elena this evening
She is hooked up to her IV fluids that will run overnight for a total of 12 hours. She will have to do this every night for at least seven days. She says sporting a backpack holding IV fluids is more fun and easier than pushing around an IV pole!
Tomorrow will be Elena's first post transplant clinic visit. Please pray that the day will be a smooth one. We are scheduled to arrive at 8:30 am. Elena's counts will be checked and she will have a physical exam. Please pray for no delays, strong counts, and no setbacks.
Please also pray specifically for Elena's potassium levels to be normal. She is having to take potassium pills right now and it is not going well at all. The pills are huge and Elena struggles to take them. Sometimes she can't take them at all.
