I'm happy to post any kind of update on Mike's condition, but these are easy and can keep coming...way to go, Miller!
I think this qualifies as a reason for an update. I've been released from the hospital. My blood numbers have improved enough that they've allowed me to move back to the apartment. I'm on a lot of medications, including anti-rejection drugs which suppress my immune system so I'm still under a lot of restrictions, but I'm out!
I'm 15 days post transplant and, according to the doctors, there are a lot of potential complications that did NOT occur, so I've been very fortunate so far. As one of the doctors said, "Every day that passes without a major complication is a victory."
I'm still going to be in the Bethesda area for the foreseeable future as I visit the clinic about 3 days a week. I guess you could call this "phase II." There's still a long way to go but I'm thankful that I got this far without any major setbacks.
I want to thank you all for your cards, packages, love and support. I couldn't have done it without you. I'll do my best to keep you informed as things progress.
