Olive Redux

It’s been a few weeks since I posted, mostly because I have simply been very tired, and not feeling well. Some of the anti-rejection drugs have played havoc with my GI system. This left me tired, dehydrated, and wondering why I did this in the first place. But my doctor ordered IV fluids to be given at home, and thanks to that and stepping down on one of the meds I feel much better. Since I needed IV fluids, I was reunited with my girlfriend Olive, or at least a close replica. Who knew they made disposable IV poles? Olive II and I got together for a couple of hours a day for the last week. The fluids helped, the cutting back on Cell-Cept helped, and I have actually been hungry! Hopefully in a few weeks I can venture away from this apartment and explore the area a bit. Olive came to my rescue again, this time as Olive II. Maybe I’ll take her home with me. Thanks for your continued prayers, believe me they are felt and appreciated.
