Fantastic News

Hey Everyone,

Things keep getting better for Greg!  He had another biopsy yesterday morning and it came back as a level 1 rejection!!!  We are thrilled to hear this because we were a bit nervous with all the medication changes and problems he had this month.  With the level 1 rejection he doesn't need any treatment and they are reducing his prednisone dose again, which is always a good thing!

He's continued to feel better and better since the weekend.  He's still sleeping a lot, but it's more like 10 or 12 hours instead of 17-19 hours.  And when he's awake he's much more alert and has better stamina - able to go up the stairs to our apartment without needing to take breaks.  It seems like the incredibly high amount of Prograf in his blood was the culprit that was making him so horribly sick, weak, and exhausted.  They've continued to decrease his Prograf because it was still a little too high in his blood work from yesterday - and they'll recheck it next Tuesday.

On Thursday he has an appointment with an Ear/Nose/Throat doctor to follow-up on the dizziness and ringing in his ears.  The next goal is for him to start cardiac rehab (it was put on hold due to the Prograf issues but in a week or so his stamina should have improved enough for him to get started).

We are so grateful that the Lord brought us through this bump in the road!  Thank you for being there for us throughout it!



  1. So stoked to hear this report!

  2. Greg, you are too damn sexy to be kept down for long! Keep looking forward to many great days ahead, and don't forget all the wonderful memories of the past...
