Post TPIAT (quick) Update

Hello! It’s been a while since I last posted. I have been slowly recuperating (and I mean slowly). I have been relying on others (my parents and grandparents). Currently, I am at home in the condo I will be living in for the next two months. I am walking very short distances with the assistance of my walker (which I affectingly named ‘lil red’ in honor of RTR). I am now a diabetic which has been a bigger adjustment than I first expected. I have to check my blood sugar before every meal (including snacks), before bed, early in the morning (5:30ish), and then again around 9:00 am. I am trucking along even on my grumpy days. I am still tired an sore. My appetite is not strong which causes issues because I have to eat to keep my blood sugar regulated. The good news is, we have some reason to believe at least some of my islet cells are working. I will talk more about that when I finally meet with my endocrinologist. A Dexcom G6 is on the way. I am excited about adding this medical device. It is a continues glucose monitor, so that means a lot less sticks! I want to thank everyone who has sent a card or present to keep me entertained while I am down for a bit! I am so thankful for the village God has provided for me! I will write a blog on the actual TPIAT surgery and recovery (in more detail). For now, I am doing pretty good considering the severity of this surgery. I am thriving as much as you with three less organs (haha who needs them anyway)! I just have low energy right now so it may be a while before I post again. I have felt your prayer and am grateful for every one of you!
