Get Down, Get Down!!


OK, so here's the scoop on Anthony's labs:

AST went from 82 on Tuesday to 68 today (still not normal, but a GREAT drop)
ALT went from 43 on Tuesday to 41 today (not a big drop, but that was normal anyway)

I have no idea what his Prograf level is, and I won't until at least tomorrow, but I'm not overly worried about that now. Anthony is NOT in rejection, so what do I care?

We'll repeat labs on Monday just to make sure that the liver enzymes are still dropping back to Anthony's normals (which is in the teens for both). CHERI! I hope you're there! If the numbers are normal, I think we'll go back to monthly labs.

It was so weird sitting here this morning waiting on labs. Lately (before this mess happened) I've been pretty unconcerned about Anthony's lab values. I was just always so confident that they weren't going to be elevated that I didn't keep checking my email (I get them via E-Fax) religiously like I used to (and did today). Mark keeps telling me I'm obsessive...maybe he's right.

Anyway, we'll repeat labs on Monday and go from there!

Thanks for checking in on us!

Love, Laurie, Mark and Anthony

Coming up in Anthony-land:

I am soooo thankful to see that the labs are better. I sure miss seeing you and Anthony. I hope to see you Monday-this being sick is really a bummer!

So glad that Anthony's labs are good and that there is no rejection! Hope labs come back good on Moday, and they will!
