Probably our best week EVER!

We had a phenomenal week, gang.

Went out on our first "date" since the transplant. Tuesday afternoon, we went to a matinee showing of Rob Zombie's HALLOWEEN 2. Wonderful flick...more blood and violence than John Carpenter could have dreamed of! There were only about 8 of us in the theatre.... no mask needed. Very enjoyable.

Afterwards, we had another milestone.... went out for a pizza at Venezia's in Harahan. Honestly, I was grinning from ear to ear all day.

Thursday was our appointment with Dr. Safah. She's extremely happy with Dom's blood counts. Said he's THIS-CLOSE to being "normal"..... it'll take another year for his energy to be 100%, but he's doing "GREAT". Told him that he should be happy. Music to our ears.

She went on to say that she didn't need to see him again for TWO WEEKS.

He needed a 2 hour drip of Magnesium again. No big deal....that'll come back in time.

Also got the go-ahead for him to order a Muffaletta sandwich.... Italian meats, cheese and olive salad on round Italian Bread. (Until now the olive salad was a no-no..... he's been extremely restricted on his food consumption.... no fresh fruits, vegetables, etc.)

Feeling a boost of confidence, I then asked if he could swim in our apartment pool or the Gulf of Mexico..... "NO!!!!!!!!" (Give Nan an inch and she'll take a mile) *smiling*

Went to P'ville on Friday to check on the kitties. Still fat and sassy. Richard McM came over for a couple of hours.... had a nice visit. He's been mowing our lawn since July. He's going to bushhog the entire property in a couple of weeks..... he's concerned about hunting season and drunken rednecks..... thus, he wants the place looking spiffy. How we love that guy!

Stopped in Slidell on the way home to visit Dom's ma and aunt. Brought ma a big-ass watermelon.....Listened to them argue for about an hour, then got outta there.

So, gang.... it's been a SUPER POSITIVE WEEK for Dom and I. Again, we thank everyone for their prayers and good thoughts.... you've worked wonders!!!!!!

Have a great holiday weekend..... we love you!
