Here’s an update on Tim, written by Tim, for those of you who haven’t received the update on him any other way. He posted this update on Facebook yesterday.
“Another week has come and gone. Andi, her mom, the kids and I went to he movies on the weekend which was fun and normal! Dad came when they left and we had some nice walks and a break from the hospital visits. Andi arrived Wednesday to be here for my first post transplant clinic Thursday morning after my heart biopsy (grade zero no rejection!!). We met with the kidney Drs today and they are very pleased with my kidney function. My weight continues to drop, no swelling in the legs and virtually none in the stomach!! Made it up two flights of stairs today which is a first. Thank you for your continued support and love. Tim”
This picture was taken as we were setting out for a walk in the rain. The apartment block is located near St. Paul’s hospital in Vancouver. Tim still has to attend weekly clinics there for weeks to come. The area is the west end of Vancouver which slopes gradually down to the water of English Bay. We walked down the hill to the water but then had to return uphill as we completed the block. Tim managed the hill very well without seeming breathless. The struggle for him came in the form of aching legs. However, we all know that he has lost so much muscle mass that it’s going to take time to rebuild-hence the discomfort.
As Tim mentioned above, our family wishes to thank all of you for your continued love and support. Much love from us to you, and to God be the glory.
‘Bye for now and God bless.
