Sunday +25 (Sunday 10:15 PM)

It turned out to be another nice day in Rochester. The temperature was about 70 degrees. The grass is green (finally) and most of the trees have leaves.

With no hospital appointment today we both felt a little strange. It was if we were having withdrawal symptoms.

Jackie continues to struggle with nausea and appetite. She is taking a lot of meds for the nausea. This, in turn, makes her sleepy. This adds to her low energy level. Today started out like most of the days lately. She started the day by feeling lousy but improved as the day progressed. She is still having a hard time eating anything or keeping what she eats down.

Tomorrow we return to the hospital for our usual appointment. I assume they will place us on a 3 or 4 time per week hospital visit/test schedule. In another week or so we I think we will graduate to a visits away from the hospital and back to either the transplant center office or doctor's office

As the day was nice, we took about a 2 hour drive around the area. There are a lot a pretty areas around the area if you know where to look. We drove to a local river. It isn't very wide but there were a lot of boats out and enjoying the nice weather. I don't think anybody was in the water, however. It is still too cold.

Until later,

Bruce and Jackie
From Rochester, MN

I hope this is another nice spring day for you. Perhaps by now you are done with the hospital visit and can explore more of Rochester.

Best wishes and lots of love, Ruth
