Nancy continues in good spirits. The yellow has returned. liver values have risen slightly and her bilirubin has skyrocketed. Dr's. are concerned that rejection may be starting. They tell me that this is not uncommon and an adjustment in meds. may be all that is needed. They passed a jugular cath. this evening to evaluate the liver cells and started blood, urine and stool cultures to rule out any signs of infection/rejection. They did another ultrasound this am and the liver parenchyma looked good as did the blood flow. A small cyst was visualized which didn't bother anyone but me.
Nancy finally was allowed to have clear fluids and soon, maybe later tonight, solid food.
I will go to work in the morning but I'll see Nancy in the evening. Mom (Mary) will at her bedside tomorrow.
Good Night

We continue to pray for and think about you both. Thanks so much for keeping us updated, Joe, I know it isn't an easy thing for you to go through. Please let her know when you see her that I love her and can't wait to see her blogging (or blackberry-ing!) again. She is in good hands, and God bless you for being there for her as well as everyone else! xoxo

Thanks Joe, we are watching the updates and sending good thoughts. You know how tough she is. Just another hicup. Love and positive thoughts, Rich and Nanci

Happy thanksgiving, Reals. I tried to leave this from my brothers' house but couldnt connect to his maladjusted wifi router. Ugh. Nancy, hang in there, hun. We adjusted our prayers, and hope you got to eat a sliver of turkey, a dab of sweet potato. My family all wish you well.Sharon sends a hug. Love, Bobby.
