Attention all loved ones: I am ok. Apparently someone has hacked into my email & is claiming that I have been kidnapped & am in London with no wallet. Wtf? Although that would have been a much more interesting ending to my trip, sadly, I am still in Newfoundland.
I would also like to point out that although I can’t spell worth shit, I can speak with proper grammer & would be hard pressed to ever use a word like “soonest”.
Nice try assholes.
Today I travelled; tonight I am travelling. & it’s dark, so pics of the water are a no-go. Makes for boring blogging.
Welcome to the world Agustus Fisher Pilon! Took you long enough baby Gus, but you were worth it!
After a somewhat eventful journey down, I made it to San Jose to visit Jill and family for a few days. A few people who knew that I was going asked me to send them a postcard. Will do my best, but am not really doing “touristy” things on this trip. In fact, when asked what touristy stuff there was to do around here, the best Jill and I could come up with was to see a Sharks game (they still have a team, right?) or take a trip to Target. We chose the trip to Target. Setting our sights high.
So far, we have managed to drag ourselves to baby boot camp, where Jill managed to pull a muscle in her neck. This has significantly impacted her level of ambition. On the other hand, it has made me feel better because it makes my own lack of ambition less obvious. It has also made my original plan of spending the entire trip curled in a ball crying on the Maysmith family couch more achievable. Go team.
California. Knows how to party.
Forgot to mention this, but it is important: in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Cystic Fibrosis Canada. www.cysticfibrosis.ca We would also like people to register to be organ donors. Thanks a million.
Reflection question: is it wrong to toast your husband’s/friend’s/son’s/brother’s new liver?
Kind of like celebrating a double lung transplant by lighting a cigar, huh?
Heading up to the hospital soon. Expect it will be a slow day. They won’t even start trying to decrease the sedation until much later. Save yourselves some stress (for now) and check back some time tonight for an update on how today went. Hopefully by then we’ll have an idea of how Joey’s liver is liking its new digs.
Here we are again. One day post-transplant!
Met with some of the liver transplant people today. Still no news; not sure exactly when we will find out whether or not they will list Joey for transplant. Will update when we know anything.
K & J
I am back in Van. The dream team is reunited!
In Joey health news: still working on the bowel blockage issue, but he looks more like his slim jim self and less like the comic book guy. Missed him a lot.
PR was fun. Did some seriously condensed visiting (those who I didn’t get to see hope to see you soon), did a day trip to Savary which was fun by the tonne, did some serious sewing, and tried to chill out at home. Last night and this morn Joey and I visited with Rebecca, went to a bit of the pride parade, and napped like the couple of sloths we are.
And on that note: goodnight!
Joey had his sinus surgery and is okay. Will update more tomorrow.
ERCP was done yesterday afternoon. Still having pain; they might do an ultrasound today to check for abcesses on his liver and then drain them if they are there.
Got an opinion yesterday from one of the liver transplant surgeons that is giving us pause for thought. Not quite ready to cast it out on the website yet; we are still processing and getting information before any decisions are made. So that’s what today will consist of.
Gotta get the boy some breakie and do some scurrying around. Peace ya’ll.
