Waiting for engraftment

Day + 7 Health Score 59

My breathing is improved today. But I think I have pneumonia. They caught it fast and have me on Zosyn and Amphotercin-B. I have not yet 'turned the corner yet" meaning that I am not diuresing. It takes a lot of energy to get out of bed, but I was up in a chair for an hour today. The doctors and nurses are very vigilant and taking great care of me.

Keep up the hard work! I'm sure it will pay off in the end after all this is done!

Hang in there Kevin. It will get better. We all know that you can do it. Let me know when you are ready for larb. Timing might be tricky, but we'll do it.

Hi Kevin,

Today is the second day of Spring, so I wanted to send you a note to wish you well!
And along with my note, here's a poem to wish you the best!

The Garden

c By John Matsen

From the depths of the earth
They rise again.
At first you hardly notice
Then you see a stem
They reach higher every day
Thirsty for rain, hungry for sun
Waiting for the day they are done
When the color peaks they look the best
So we gaze at our garden
While we rest!

Blessings to you and Barbie!
