Addition by Subtraction

Of course every other blogger is writing their “what I’m thankful for” post this week, but…yeah…a little too obvious here so we’ll just let that be understood, k?

After Eliana’s transplant, the expectation was that she’d come home complicated and get easier over time. It’s now been about 6 months and we got to cross a couple more things off The List this week.


At her 6 month appointment on Monday we eliminated one more medication (good timing, since SOMEBODY who is a male parent left it out of the refrigerator overnight on Sunday), and dialed another back to once a day.  That takes us down to 8 per day – 6 prescriptions and 2 OTC supplements. A cakewalk, I tell ya’.

Even more exciting – fanfare please – the bloodwork that MUST BE DRAWN AT 8AM MONDAYS AND THURSDAYS NO MATTER WHAT AND YOU’D BETTER NOT BE LATE!!! is now going to be either once a week or once every two week (there’s a little confusion about that one.) And for a little icing on the cake, her regular clinic visits are moving from monthly to quarterly.

Plenty of other progress too – lots of walkering, the occasional accidental swallow, and a serious case of the feisties, but they don’t fit the theme so they’re for some other time.  There’s one more subtraction moment you’ll want to hear about, but I’m gonna’ leave that one to Amy as an incentive to get her back to the keyboard.
