A month ago today our lives were forever changed. Katy’s recovery has been incredible. Dr. Blume told us that kids waiting for transplants fall on a scale between those that may not survive the surgery to those that will thrive and go on to play soccer. She has always assured us that Katy was on the soccer end of the spectrum. I never expected that Katy would be ready to play soccer one month post transplant. ( NO SHE IS NOT PLAYING SOCCER… yet)
Since Katy has been home she has been thriving and doing wonderful. I am happy to report that she had her second biopsy and has ZERO rejection. Her immunosuppressant levels have been solid. All great news.
As for the rest of us Murphy’s… oh, we are loving life and breathing easy for the first time in years. We are very excited and hopeful to get back to normal and it’s nice to see some of that already happening. Katy still requires a lot of care ( intense med schedule and LOTS of appointments) but, it is just so much easier to deal with.
I would like to share with you a video that my cousin Paula made for Katy. It is gorgeous, and she is much quicker than me!
I still have have some more to share from our very special day… but I wanted to give you a current update.
I we celebrate this milestone please pray for our donor family. I imagine that this is a very difficult milestone for them.
