Ok, ok, ok, are you ready to have your minds blown? Your girl is being discharged from the hospital. TOMORROW!
Ok, let me catch you up. I was moved from the SICU to the 7th floor the night before last. The Team was trying to figure out how to get me to inpatient rehab for a bit, however, the doctors in rehab felt I'm just too darn independent for their services to be beneficial to me. Outpatient rehab will be a better fit so that's the plan.
I do still need IV medications so this morning I had another procedure done to put in a line similar to the dialysis line in my chest and they will teach me how to care for and access that so I can distribute my own medications without having to stay in the hospital.
God is so good and heard our prayers, the Transplant House finally had a bed open and we were able to snatch it up! It is a huge relief to know we will be in an apartment with other immune compromised folks that understand the importance of a clean space. And it is only about a mile from UW, which will be handy since I'll still have multiple visits per week with all the providers here and trying to get as much outpatient rehab in as possible before facing a second liver transplant down the road.
Warriors, I would like to make the request that we please pray for the protection of myself and momma as we transition from a hospital setting to an environment that is more risky for infection and of course COVID-19 exposure.
The photo below is of me on a walk about after lunch today. Its a special one because it is the first time they let me walk the 7th floor loop without a chaperone! Getting stronger every day. We got this!
