Hello loyal readers!
On 1/27, I passed a transplant milestone- 6 months since my transplant! The greatest celebration was that on my 6 month bronchoscopy, I don’t have any signs of rejection. That makes 6 months full of bronchoscopies, no rejection so far. This is big news because rejection in the first six months to a year is the most concerning, though likely I will have some form of rejection at some point – don’t we all?
I have also gone back to work on a part time basis for the Wheelock Family Theatre, as well as Watertown High School, where I used to teach English and Drama. I am directing “Guys and Dolls,” and I’m happy to say that I have one of the nicest high school casts I’ve had so far . . . that is to say, so far so far. We are early in our process
Other than that, I am spending lots of social time and sort of re-learning how to be busy and keep my shit together, psychologically, medically, organizationally.
Another milestone- is that I have lost my Thank You Card List from transplant time. So suffice it to say, that I am deeply grateful for every bit of support that I received from family, friends, blog readers, and even strangers. If I did not have the chance to write to you personally, please know that I thank you for your support, for pictures of your pets, from post cards around the world, for poem and personal stories, and most of all, I am deeply thankful to my donor.
Have a great day,
