25. What do you want for Christmas this year? I'd like a new ukulele (Fluke, slightly larger then concert sized thankyouverymunch) but my favorite gift every year is being woken up on Christmas morning by my nieces, so really, I'd like that again this year.

I am on rapamune after my transplant, and have had some mouth sores, but luckily they have not been too bad. Have you had many other problems? I am getting worried about being around coughing and sneezing people now that we are in that grusome winter season.

I've actually had fewer colds since I had my transplant. I think it has something to do with my new obsession with washing my hands. :)

I'm sorry about your mouth sores, they can be brutal. The only other issues I've had with Rapamune have been minor ones like mild anemia, higher cholesterol and higher blood pressure. For the most part they have been controlled with meds.

Feel free to email me if you have other questions.
