I forgot to write about Kelly’s biopsy! It seems like hers and mine were quite different. She got three numbing shots (lidocaine), including one in her liver. For every shot, they had her exhale completely and hold her breath. She said she didn’t feel the biopsy. She was a little sore and had some shoulder pain.
My biopsy I only got one numbing shot and it felt like they were trying to pull my liver out throw a straw when they did the biopsy (followed by getting kicked in the ribs by a steel toe boot). I also was in quite a bit of pain afterwards. Kelly did much better than I did. Either she is way tougher than me or UCSF does better biopsies than Kaiser. I’m sure UCSF is better at most things… Just interesting to me to see the differences.
I am really excited and nervous about our appointment with the transplant surgeon tomorrow. I have so many questions for him. Literally, I’ve had to make a list. I will let you know how it goes! =)
This verse has really helped me to get through this last week.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
