Only Organ Practice




I'm doing better, really. I hardly use the oxygen at all except when I'm walking long distances (like I think more than .2 of a mile... that's the measure of walking from the boat to the end of the parking area at the marina). My pulmonary pressure remains good, the pericardial effusion is lessening, my steroid dosage is smaller.

My rheumy wants to take me off the prednisone and put me on something called Cellcept, which is an immune suppressor they give to transplant patients. She says it has less dramatic side effects than the steroids. We shall see how that goes in the next month or so...

But...

The real news is revealed (like Handel says: ree-VEE-led) here.

Here's a hint: this is a photo I took while underneath the Chesapeake Bay Bridge near Annapolis...

Wonderful -- it looks like it was pretty chilly, though!

Cold, wet, choppy.

Completely fun.
