This is the eve of the transplant procedure. The doctors told us we are ready. We feel we are; physically, emotionally and spiritually. But that doesn't mean that we are fearless. As the hours diminish toward the 7:00am schedule, my fear increases. I do not know how Ninette is coping. We are isolated from each other in separate hospital rooms. Maybe writing this is my way of coping.
The past 3 days were spent to dull my immune system. I took more than 40 pills a day. And I felt the effects; elevated BP, warm feeling but no temperature while feeling cold outside, drowsy, frequent naps but no long sleep, slurred speech, stammering, some mild hallucinations.
But we're a GO! Will update as soon as I can.
