No Rejection

Me and Sara Lou Hoo

Our studly pooch Jake

Shawn and I goofing in the hospital, (he's our other stud)

Shawn's very young,28, and very sweet anesthesiologist

Yayyy Good news all around!
I picked up Shawn from the hospital yesterday afternoon, he looks wonderful and he is feeling really good too, still has a little cough but no "pneumonia"

His cultures came back showing MRSA which he has been colonized with for years but I assumed it wouldn't show up in the new lungs, but I thought wrong. They treated it pretty agressively with IV Vanco while inhouse and have sent hime home on PO Linezolid, crazy expensive, 9 pills get ready for this........$826.20 !!! Can you believe that? How is it possible? Thank God we live in Mass. He had to wait for a couple of hours for it to go through the insurance but it did, thankfully.

He got the call yesterday afternoon that his biposy came back with no signs of rejection. Phew.

I kind of expected or was at least prepared for rejection. It's crazy the last biopsy he was feeling perfectly fine and came back with rejection, this time he felt like shit and had crap going on in those lungs and no rejection. I'm not complaining but man you just can't tell.

I have to change the date on my dgtrs camera, darn
