|Lillian 2 years to the hour after being in surgery for her transplant prep.|
Of the issues still affecting us, the largest would be getting med levels right. Despite our best efforts, Lillian's Cyclosporine levels are continually low, and stay that way no matter how much we raise her dose. This is probably due in part to the... cleansing side effects of some of her other medicine, which is a two part battle we are always fighting. Thankfully, it is about as small of an issue that a transplant patient can have. We also find that her extremities are extremely cold to the touch most of the time, but it appears that this is likely just something that will always affect her.

Despite our worries for her biopsy, we feel that Lillian is doing extremely well, and we are eternally grateful for the life she was given. We always consider today to be a bigger day than her birthday, because without today, she wouldn't have a birthday at all. We have our donor angel to thank for that.
