Yep, that can only mean the McYongs are packing up again! Woohoo!! Next week we are heading to the sunshine and heat of Mexico with most of the Yong family clan. With Lao Lao, Gong Gong, three sisters, their husbands and four children under the age of four, it should be chaotic, crazy and mostly fun. We are celebrating Gong Gong’s 70th birthday with a rare family vacation. Last time we did this was three years ago to celebrate my parent’s 40th wedding anniversary. Addison is very excited about getting on another airplane, mostly because we let her have free reign over the iPad and episodes of Dora. She is also looking forward to playing on the beach with three of her cousins, including baby Luca who is visiting from Hong Kong for the summer.
At Transplant Clinic last week, we got to rejoice with the rest of the team at Addison’s happy GFR numbers. For the nurses, cardiologists, pharmacist, dietitian and other staff, it’s their job to look after Addison and all the other patients, but clearly it’s more than that. They were all so excited, relieved and thrilled along with us, it really is like they are part of our extended family. You know they are rooting for the Princess through every step of this journey.
The other good news is Addison’s TAC levels are right in the ball park. It seems we have found the magic number, at least for now! Our next “fun” hospital appointment will be another biopsy scheduled for July 23.
For now, let’s focus on the fun stuff. We are looking forward to a week of insanity in Puerto Vallarta!!
Elaine, Aaron and Addison
