Thanksgiving day

Nancy continues in her struggle. Biopsy confirms rejection. Her creatine, a measure of kidney function, continues to climb to the point that the Dr's. are considering dialysis. Bilirubin and liver values are still high but stable for the moment. thanks to the steroids. Steroids are also causing diabetes, edema, ascites and so on.
Nancy's spirit remains high through this struggle. I always knew that she is a strong woman and this certainly confirms it for me. I wonder if I would have the GRIT to go through what she is struggling with..
Mary brought Nancy a Thanksgiving dinner from Mimi's restaurant and she enjoyed it and ate well.
Nancy enjoys your cards and thoughts, keep them coming. Send them on line, to home or Loma Linda University Hospital % Nancy Real room 9 bed 2.
Now off to see what this day brings.
