Today has been a good day.
Since my last post, there's been such a wonderful outpouring of love & support to both Gord & I. In the last couple of days there has been a near constant stream of friends dropping by to give Gord their positive energies. And you know what? I think it's working.
The sign-in book at the nurse's station reads like the most popular kid in school's high school yearbook. Today several people came by just to give Gord their best & it obviously had a good effect on him. The confusion he was experiencing in the last few days seems to be lifting - he was with it enough to ask for a pen & paper & scratch out 'GET ME THE HEEELL OUT OF HERE! WE NEED A WHEELCHAIR!" Also overheard today was 'Punkstable McMailbox' which I think should be the name of his next music project.
Both his liver & kidney numbers have gone down a little & the transplant team have decided to put him back on anti-rejection meds (not the same one as before, but this is very good news). His diarrhea is lessening & he's not on nearly as many pain meds. All such wonderful news.
A note to those of you who may be thinking of visiting - Gord's immune system is *extremely* vulnerable at this time. If you are planning on seeing him, please be sure that you are absolutely, positively in tip-top shape. No colds, runny noses, sore throats. Our guy is working double-time to get better & is exhausted, follow his lead & visit accordingly & keep those good vibes coming.
