Somthing Very Special

Dear friends,

God has sent me a gift. Jordan Shortino. He passed away on November 10th 2007. Jordan was a donor and I was blessed to receive his liver. He saved my life. Recently, I was blessed to receive a phone call from a sweet lady named Nancy. She was Jordan's mom. Two weeks ago I met with Nancy and Bobs at there home. They are wonderful people. They were so kind to Brian, Wyatt and I. We had a wonderful visit. I could never express enough with words what they mean to me and my family. We are forever thankful. I wish I could have met Jordan. He was an amazing person.
Thank you Jordan.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!

It is an exciting Christmas for Brian, Wyatt and I because Its not at a hospital! Brian and I are headed to my in-laws who live in Kentucky to celebrate this wonderful season of Christmas. Wyatt will get to play in the snow for the first time. The doctors have never been so happy with my health. They say that I am better than I've ever been and that all the problems that put me in the hospital were caused from to much medication. Just to show you how much they have cut my med's down, I normally take 42 myfortic acid pills a week. I'm down to 12! This one particular drug is the reason that doctors have told Brian and I that we can not have anymore children. But, for the first time last week the doctors gave us hope that sometime next year Brian and I might be able to have another baby. That is of course if I stay healthy and stable. The goal is to get me off this one medication all together. We are sooooooo happy! Just to here hope is more that we could have ever imagine. So, to all my friends, may you have a wonderful and blessed Christmas. Until next time.

Bethani, Brian and Wyatt Roam

Always hope

Hello all,

Well first thing I want to say is thank God for drugs!!..haha. The drugs they gave me for my colonoscapy were wonderful. I don't remember and thing!! praise the Lord! :) haha. Everything came back normal and they have lowered my rejection med's a ton. The doctor's think they may be the culprit. I go back in two weeks for a check up and get my blood drawn every Tue. for a few weeks and hope for the best. Wow it was tough being in the hospital this time. Being with out Wyatt was almost unbearable for Brian and I. Six days seemed like an eternity! But we are back home and with our beautiful little Wyatt. Thank you Jesus! There is always hope. I love you guys.
Thanks for the notes and prayers.

Bethani, Brian and Wyatt Roam

Hosptial Again

My dear friends,

Well here I am once again in my second home. j/k I've been here so many times that it feels like it. I was admitted into the ER here at UCSF last night late because of severe lower abdominal problems, nausea and throwing up. My liver #'s we in the 1oo's. Ouch! not good. But as of this morning my #'s seem to be a little better. The doctors seem to think that the high amounts of medications that I take may have caused some toxicity in my system causing all these problems so they are going to slowly lower my med's. I was also dehydrated. They plan on watching me closely to day and then running some tests starting tomorrow. Such as, CT scans, Liver Biopsy, upper oscopy and colonoscopy.. so I'm up for some interesting stuff. The nausea has lessened due to a medication they have been giving me. But as of yet they are still not sure what is up with me! so here I am just waiting trying to feel better. My spirits are up and I am trying to be optimistic. Once we find out anything that is more solid we will let you know. Please continue to pray for us though, its not easy being here again.

We love all of you
