  • 11/22/2010 Transplant plus 4 yrs plus 77 days!
    We are home from what is Bonnie's third trip to Boston docz since Aug 31 (Transplant anniversary). This week we are celebrating our 22 anniversary. Both of us are busy on the book and with grandparenting. Bonnie's left eye continues to heal the "defects" that probably resulted in an attack of graft-vs-host disease this summer. Her Boston surgeon put a piece a placenta on the cornea and stitched it shut the first week of Sept and again in October. Most of the October stitches have come off, but Bonnie is keeping it well gooped and taped shut in an effort to give it a couple of other weeks of rest to secure the healing. Daniel is the sick one these days with terrible hip pain and now a very bad case of the crud. And still we are happy and doing well. We had a wonderful time with the kiddos at Halloween. Bonnie made Halloween coloring books from their own past Halloween pictures (at Crayola.com). They all came to hear Bonnie preach on the 21st; they are getting more and more accustomed to being in church and liking it more. We will be celebrating Thanksgiving at Jen's house with them and the other four grandparents. We loved seeing grandson Jackson and his mom, Dr. Deb in Boston. Jackson is quite the kindergartener and athlete these days. He's quite into playing chess. The book writing is squeezed in between doc and kiddo visits and church activities. We enjoy beautiful sunsets over the ocean every night.

Bonnie,

I'm so glad about your sight! Encouraging that you kept at it! rather than just giving up. Glad to about your infection clearing up but please be careful! Mom's urologist (she had bladder issues as well; think she even had a scope at one time as well) would not put her back on her preventative meds she'd gotten off of when he found out about her eye surgery; said it would mess her eye up, so be sure to see about that. ? about you saying your Cipro was not for treating the infection; that's what her primary always gave her for her bladder infection; granted it did seem as if it got to where it wasn't helping and she got to the point of having a kidney infection before she realized it but still he always said that's what it was for. If you could tell me more, I'd appreciate it. But mostly take care of yourself.
Donna
