SF Sunny Sunday

Happy Sunday everyone! Parm and Heidi were up early today, and the recovery continues.

Heidi looked good.  She did an ultrasound early this morning to take a peek at the new liver.   She came back, saying that the doctors said all is good.  The nurse came by and took her blood sugar, which also came back normal.  I believe the official word is that she no longer needs insulin.  Yipee!  Heidi’s also on a full diet now; she can have anything under the sun (hospital approved that is).  It was a happy moment when I got to order apple sauce, yogurt, and scrambled eggs for her.  She didn’t eat all of it, but it’s nice that she’s thinking about food again.  In general, Heidi says she feels different and feels very different than when she had the old liver.

Unfortunately, Parm is still feeling pains.  His bodily organs are still trying to wake up from the surgery and drugs, so that is causing him quite some discomfort.  The good news is that Parm has been unhooked from his dance partner, making him pretty much wireless again.  The epidural line was also removed.  It’s nice to know there’s nothing tapped into his spine anymore.  Right now, Parm’s just hoping his body warms up quick so he can feel like himself again.  Good luck Parm!

  1. Heidi and Chris, congratulations on your great progress. The updates on Liverzilla have been wonderful. Chris and Wendy, what a fabulous resource to “stay tuned” and keep up with your progress. Great photos and warm, loving stories! All of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Let us know when you are up for visitors or if cards only at this point. Love and hugs, Nancy

  2. Hey Parm! Stay up my brother! I hope you have a speedy recovery and it’s great news that your Mom seems to be doing very well after the surgery. God Bless.

  3. We have read your entire blog and looked at the wonderful pictures. We are so happy that things are going so well. A wonderful gift… returned.

  4. Dear Parm and Heidi

    I am so happy to hear that you are both doing so well. But what else should I have expected from such rock stars?!! I unfortunately have been selected to serve on a jury for the next week, so I’m unlikely to make into UCSF for a visit. But I hope to see you during recovery at home. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. And I’m so happy that you have been so well cared for by my UCSF colleagues!

    With love and gratitude,

  5. Wendy, great job keeping us updated on their unbelievable and wonderful recovery! It is my online fix every day. So happy to hear that both of them will be home this week in time for fireworks on the 4th, even from their recovery beds. Will look forward to many more posts on their journey back to their healthy selves. Alooooooha!

  6. Mark told me that Heidi had been ill. I had no idea that it was so serious that she required a transplant. Parm you’re very courageous to share the gift of life with your mother. I’m so very proud of you. Best wishes for a speedy recovery and a long healthy happy life
