About Me: Please use this space to tell the community about you and your unique experience with transplantation:
I personally know a young lady the same age as my younger daughter who is waiting for a liver donor, and following her journey intently. I personally see the struggle of those who need transplants and have also seen the need for public education regarding donation. Many myths surround donation that, with education, will be dispelled.

"Hi, still in rejection, posted update on my page. I wasn't sick or anything. I felt fine, just went in for labs like usual and here I am 3 months later. Thanks for the concern and checking in on me! I am getting labs again Thursday.
I haven't posted since this started but still in rejection. September 11th, it will be 3 months since this started. It kind of was getting better so doc lowered prednisone to 15mg and let me go a month till next labs. I had those labs August 17th and they went up, a lot. He raised my Prednisone to 40mg for 7 days, 30mg for another 7 days. I am almost done with the 30mg and it will go back to 20mg. I am getting labs again Thursday. I've pretty much been getting labs every two weeks since this started.You can go to my main blog to read the updates to this.http://terri7291.blogspot.com/Current med listPrograf 3mg twice a dayCellcept 500mg twice a dayPrednisone 30mg once a dayMotropolol 25mg once a day (blood pressure)Terri24 Year Liver Transplant SurvivorSee More
