Hi Powder Puff! OOPS on the unwanted E. Sparkles is a writer you know. I try to correct myself before I send him anything, but I'm sure stuff slips by. It's his fault if he wants to hang with illiterates. At least he doesn't send stuff back with red mark corrections!
Hi Michael, how nice to hear from you. What is going on? Are you doing okay?
Talk about accents.....my husband, Jon, just returned from Cairnes yesterday after a 10 day trip. He went to some very good friends of ours daughter's wedding. He's English, our friends are transplanted Jamaicans who have raised their children in Australia. My husband from the age of 10 lived in Jamaica where he grew up with our friends. When they have come to visit us here in California, I have a hard time with all the accents and patois'. He (Jon ) fell in love with Cairnes and wants to go back. He can't get over how everyone there is "so nice"! The place is gorgeous, I can tell by the photos. Where exactly are you? I am very glad you enjoy The Funny Bone. Thanks. Hugs to you.

If your doc write BS/BS and specifies that you need prograf, not a generic med, they will back down. It's up to a doc to decide. All generic meds aren't the same as the name brand. At MGH they prefer prograf, although they said…"

Welcome from me as well. I'm three plus years out...I was on the prograf (as much as 30 mg a day) and others including immuran (as much as 150 a day) and prednisone for the first year or so...I'm now down to simply 1mg x 2…"
So I had my first liver tx in 2005 (living donor) and had bile duct issues. I had a 2nd tx March 16th and have bile duct problems yet again and now I'm faced with needing a 3rd tx. Has anyone out there had 3 transplants? I've been stuck in hospital since March and the doctors want to send me home...even though I still require IV antibiotics and a VACC system. My family and I are quite nervous.
