Feeling Better

I had my second heart biopsy yesterday and everything looks fine. I am feeling better but still feel weak. My main goal is nutrition. Anyone that has had major surgery goes through a negative protein balance as your body heals itself. I was in protein deficit even prior to surgery so I have a long way to go. My steroid dose is now dropping daily and this will help to allow me to feel more normal.
Every day is a little better.
The need for patience continues.

Hi Kevin, so glad you are feeling much better. Now I know what you meant when you said, "eat more protein". I guess it helps later after the transplant. I talked to Janet and she said Tippy is doing well. I also asked her about using the internet in the hospital. She said Kevin, "figured it out" and to ask you. Have a wonderful day and I can't wait to see you next week at the support group. I'm looking forward to finally meeting Barbie too. God Bless.
