Rough Night, Better Day

As of the transplant yesterday, Andrea is at zero immunity and the doctors stepped up the anti-rejection medicines. This extra hard on Andrea because it means limiting contact to caregivers and doctors. Thank goodness for the telephone or cards that can be sent to her house because Andrea does need contact with the outside world! We read this blog to her all the time, too, which gives her an extra boost of confidence that "this too will pass quickly". We are so appreciative of the Internet while cooped up in a 10 by 10 room.
The anti-rejection meds last night caused a big headache from about 10 p.m. until 2 a.m., then relief with sleep came.
Thank you all for continued prayers.

Hi Andrea,
Though I can only imagine how sick of being sick you must be, I hope you know that I find your fight and your faith to be a true lesson in living.

I wanted to let you know that a friend of mine is running a marathon for Team in Training. I told her about you and her team has included you as someone for whom they are running to honor. I know she is a stranger to you but she has been touched and motivated by your story. If you are interested, their blog is www.misfitrunners.com.

I continue to send prayers for strength and for healing your way.

Much love,
Allison Lucke

Hey Chica,

You're getting closer and closer to putting all this behind you! Keep your head up and read your trash mags; I hear there's Britney drama hitting the stands. ;o) We love you and are thinking about you ALWAYS!

Andrea,

You are one day closer to defeating this. I pray that the hospital time passes fast and that your time is as pain-free as possible.

You are the strongest person I know.

Love and miss you,
