Amee, what a blessing! Wow, that was fast! Here's hoping that all goes well for her and she will have a good recovery...but be prepared for a few bumps along the way.
Thanks for the update, Amee. Get some rest and keep us posted on her progress.
Amee, that's good that she's being closed up tomorrow, as being open she is very susceptible to infection. I've not heard of the new drug, but perhaps someone else has.
Thanks for the update and remember to take care of yourself!
Amee I have not hear of the new drug but I'm curious to learn about it. Jerry is on Prograf and he is having problems with his kidneys. That really concerns me because right after his surgery his kidneys were not doing well at all. It took a couple of days. He's had kidney problems for two years now. You need to trust those ICU nurses. I know when Jerry was in ICU he had his own nurse that sat in the room with in 24 hrs a day. They were specially trained. I know I felt so secure. I was worried when they sent him to a room. I hope someone is helping you. You need to take care of you and your baby. Just think Gramma will be well enough to hold that baby. That is so special. I will say a prayer for you and your mother in law.
WONDERFUL news, Amee!! Continued thoughts and prayers for a smooth recovery.
Amee, setbacks are to be expected. I've had Versed several times and it is considered "consious sedation" as the patient is able to respond, and you do come out of it very quickly. It's probably not deep enough sedation for what they need.
As for your BIL, let him know that there is treatment for hep C if he is interested. You might also want to give him the URL of this site: www.hepatitiscentral.com There's much more information there on all forms of hep than here. They have been around for many years. Also stress to him not to drink alcohol at all...and of course, the same goes for drugs. I hope he has good luck with treatment!
Amee, you can also give him my e-mail addy (in my profile), if you like. I'd be glad to try to answer any questions he has. It would be great if he would come here, too. Of course, all you can do is suggest to him--the action has to come from him.
Have a good Sat. and get some rest!
