Angie, sometimes I'm just on "autopilot," doing whatever is necessary without much thought.
The thumb has improved greatly with the exercises and massage. Not 100% yet, but definitely a whole lot better.
The midriff "hole" continues to shrink and I now believe it was just healing skin underneath and not infection. I guess the CT on Thurs. will tell the true story. I will also be interested to know if the e-coli in my lungs is gone. I have no more coughing, so I think that was just a virus I had. Took a long time to go away, but my lungs feel clear now.
P.S. My transplant coordinator (TC) called and asked why I didn't have the chest CT on Fri. I told her I wasn't aware I was supposed to, as it isn't on my schedule. She said that she had mentioned it over the phone to me last week. Well, I told her my memory is shot and if it isn't written down then I don't know what's going on. I do not recall that conversation at all. Anyway, she said she would try to put it back to this Thurs., which was the original date. Scheduling called me right away and they were able to put it back to Thurs. at nearly the same time. Whew! Otherwise, I would have to go to Mayo again on Fri.
