Today we didn't have to be at the clinic till noon. It was nice for Kevin to be able to sleep in on his Birthday and enjoy the morning. He had blood drawn and an x-ray to make sure the pneumonia is all cleared up and that he's healthy enough to start the transplant process. We meet with a nurse practitioner who confirmed that we are A GO.
Now we wait for a bed to open up for Kevin. We have learned that this is not as easy as it sounds because so many other patients are in for an extended stay as well and the floor is only so long. They are hopeful that they might have a bed tomorrow which would be great but we've been told not to get our hopes up. It will all work out for our good as everything else has, so we will be patient and ready whenever they are.
Kevin had ribs for his Birthday dinner and loved them! A HUGE thank you to everyone who called and sent him text messages for his birthday. He was shocked at how many people remembered, sshhhh don't tell on me ;-)
