Day 17: Side Effects
I'm tired tonight from a long day so this post will be short. Krista is continuing to do well. She got a red blood transfusion this morning. Last night she couldn't sleep because of an extra steroid dose they gave her late on the day. We spent an interesting time together around 3:30 am as she was enjoying the good feelings of some of the side effects of the meds she's on. It's not uncommon for transplant patients to have hallucinations, and Krista was seeing and hearing some that appear to be making her feel better. If her kidney and liver functions weren't doing as well as they are I would be worried. But as this is one of the few pleasures she's had in a while as long as the doctors aren't worried, I'm ok with it.
Jannelle is staying the night with Krista tonight so I could go back to Santa Barbara to see Trevor's choir concert. It was fun to see them all singing broadway songs. I'll head back down tomorrow.
The afflicted also will increase their gladness in the Lord,
And the needy of mankind will rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
