More news from the hospital. Tara may get out Thursday!! She feels a little pain, went to see her daddy, ate and kept it down, and had her (almost) 3 year old son in with her most of the day!! Jim went for a walk, his color is wonderful, he is using very little pain meds, has read his information booklet on transplantation and wants to walk down to see Tara. He is also thrilled that there is an almost non-existent dietary limitation!!! He can have milk and cheese and peanut butter and peas again. YIPPEE!! You would think we had won the lottery!!

Dawn, I am just catching up on this, having some of my own health problems. I am so thrilled that the transplant went well and they are both coming along great. My prayers continue for you and your family.

That's better than the lottery Dawn! I'm glad things are going so well, and I will keep praying for continuing good news.

They may release Jim Saturday. Tara is still in quite a bit of pain, but tries not to take the pain meds so that she can "work through it". Jim walked down to her room yesterday and talked to her for an hour and made her see that it was in her best interest to use the meds. Her room is about 60 - 80 feet from his!! We have a 2:00 class today for patients and caregivers on everything to expect and the drug regime.

Thanks for the good news, Dawn. It has been a long and difficult journey for you all. Your family is amazingly strong and courageous. You should be proud of them all - including yourself.

All is wonderful!! First "clinic" went great, after today, Jim will be down to one a week already!! He can drive possibly after next week, and go back to work in two months; as long as he doesn't lift more than 35 pounds. He is so happy to be able to eat whatever he wants now, he is like a child in a candy store!! "More peas please!" Tara is coming along slowly but is on no pain meds now ezcept at bedtime. :>) The only problem we have is getting the grandson to daycare!! Thank you so much for all you love and prayers. They certainly can do miracles!!

That is great, Dawn!! Tell your daughter, what a wonderful person she is!! Even though she is your daughter, she didn't have to sacrifice. She did it out of love for her dad and that is more than any of us can ever hope for. Bless her heart!!
