He was a little hopeful that he would be discharged today because the clinical pharmacist gave him a new blue card (table of meds/doses/times, etc...) to go home with. Sadly Danny isn't allowed to take any kind of medicine that would help diarrhea except for Metamucil (I know, that's for constipation...but apparently it works by bulking up the stool so in theory it should help). Meds like Pepto Bismol negatively interact with his transplant meds.
Hopefully he will be able to come home tomorrow. Today is Maggie's 15th birthday! Last year Danny was in the hospital too, I think he had just gotten his LVAD. We had a birthday party for her in the hospital. Charlie's birthday is in December and we celebrated his in the hospital last year too! Looks like we'll do it again for Charlie since the hernia surgery is in December!!! Good thing my kids haven't ever gotten accustomed to big birthday parties with a bunch of friends!!
I'm excited for Danny to get back home. I went to see him last night and it was like being back in our second home! We know the nurses and staff and it feels very comfortable there. I haven't decided if that's a good thing or not! Being apart from each other isn't easy.
Thanks for praying! No rejection is definitely praise worthy!!!!
