Per Orange Mane

7 am yesterday

"Well Crazyhorse had a bit of a rough night. They have been slowly taking him off of his meds. Well that is the blood pressure medicine and the sedation medication. Well he struggled coming off the sedation meds. So they had to put him back on the blood pressure medicine and resedate him. They are going to give him a couple of days before they try again.
On the brighter side. They have the ventilator (sp?) set up for a certain amount of breathes per minute and Dan is doing more than that on his own. They are saying that this is all very normal and that he is really doing good."

WilliamTheIrish
05-26-2009, 04:46 PM
It's a difficult recovery but can can go very well once stabilization takes place. They'll manage him with meds and keep a close eye on the rejection issue. Good luck to the guy.

Recently had a coworker lose a 21 year kid to CF. She was days away from a heart lung transplant. I don't think I grieved that much over my own mothers funeral. Just something about seeing life snuffed out of a promising kid.

Good thoughts to ya, Crazy Horse.

He's a Chiefs fan. He posts here, but for some reason he ended up spending more of his posting time at OrangeMane. At first I think it was because he enjoyed :Poke: the donk fans, but he apparently made some ifriends over there.

After a surgery this complex, some post-op difficulties are to be expected. The medical profession has become extraordinarily skilled at this type of thing, though. I know a guy who had a heart transplant over 20 years ago and is doing great. Both the technology and techniques have advanced greatly since then, too. I have every confidence that Mr. CrazyHorse will come through fine.

Our thoughts and prayers remain with you, however, Mr. CrazyHorse. Give 'em hell, man.

Normally they wouldn't offer a transplant to someone who's condition would simply re-attack the new organ. That's why cancer patients are often ineligible for transplants.

this is crazy's wife. I am moved by all the positive feed back on this post. He will also be moved when he reads it. Wow,Thanks everyone. He is doing pretty good, they took the breathing tube out, but put a trache in. He is starting to do a little therapy, they turn the ventillator off for a couple hours and let him breath on his own. They want to slowly build up the new lungs. He tested negative for rejection ( right now). He sleeps allot, and can't talk because of the trache. We would love to get out of ICU! I need some sleep. Keep praying, and thinking about him, He is very valuable. Thank you thank you thank you

Thanks for the update Mrs CH. Continued good wishes to you and your family.

Great point Tmax - This should also serve as a reminder just how important it is for us to be organ donors ourselves. Don't forget to have it on your driver's license. Don't leave it up to your family to decide.

CrazyHorse's surgery got me thinking about transplants, and how more people need them. I'm listed on my license as a donor and my family knows of my wishes. If I can help someone from my death, then my life was worth it.

Hey guys I just spent a couple of days with Crazyhorse.
He sure seems to be in very good care!! His color is really good. He is spending less and less time on the ventilator, I think he spent 16 hrs off of the ventilator yesterday. His spirits were really good. All inspite of doing some of the hardest work that he has done yet.
He was even picking on the nurses and pointing out that there was some nice tail working around there.

Well guys we just found out that crazys' body is trying to reject these lungs. He has been struggling pretty hard for a week now. They are starting him on a very high dose of prednazone (sp?) steroid to shut his immune system down to try and stop the rejection and get the fluid off of his lungs. It will take 10 days to 2 weeks to see if this is going to stop the rejection.

Well Crazyhorse is awake. All still seems to be going good. They have removed the ventilator and he is breathing on his own.

Great news, stay strong Crazy, my prayers are still with you.

For anyone that doesn't know transplants require a wide variety of Meds afterwords, some hard core stuff. They essentially shut down your immune system with poisons and then give you a few other meds to counteract the effects of the bad stuff. It all boils down to you cant be around anyone with a cold, you have a vastly increased chance of infection from everyday things like bug bites or papercuts, and frequently you feel very ill for no reason (aside from the meds) what-so-ever. The doctors recomend if you have a fever over 100 degrees that you immediately go to an emergency room. Theres a lot more, but that gives you the idea. Crazyhorses lifestyle is probably going to change drastically, although the meds he was already taking were similar in effect. Just keep it in mind when he does get out, it can be very physically taxing.

Almost OT, but closely related...

This info about the immunosuppressant drugs may be a bit, ah, heavy-handed. I received a kidney transplant about six months ago, and I have to say that the anti-rejection drugs have not affected my life as much as I expected. I'm currently on three anti-rejection drugs and some blood pressure meds. I take about 15 pills a day, split between morning and evening doses. I'll be on the anti-rejection drugs for as long as the transplant lasts. We hope that means for the rest of my life.

My doctors started me off with massive doses of anti-rejection drugs while I was in hospital and monitored closely for ANY sign of rejection with blood tests drawn daily (twice daily at first). As soon as the blood test results supported it, they started drawing down the drug dosages. The drug load I take now is *maybe* 1/3rd of where we started. I'm sure that's what they'll do with CrazyHorse too: as soon as possible, they'll start lowering his doses. Their goal is to find the minimum level of the drugs required to prevent rejection of the transplant.

At first, while I was in the hospital and shortly after my release, we watched like hawks for any sign of infection from anything. No contact with anyone with any form of cold or flu, washing my hands frequently, and so on. I even wore a surgical mask my first few times going back to the transplant clinic for blood work & checkups. All those restrictions and requirements gradually eased within the first six weeks or two months. After I went home, I started off with returning to the transplant clinic three times a week. Then once a week. Then once a month. Now that I've made it past six months, my next regular appointment there will be at the one year mark. (Barring anything coming up between now & then.) I see my regular doctor every two months, and that's it so far.

I've had very few side effects from the anti-rejection drugs. The most noticeable side effect is that I've put on probably about 10 pounds or so in the last six months. That's a common side effect of prednisone for anyone who takes it. I feel better every day than I have in years. It's true that cat-scratches and similar minor injuries are slower to heal now, and I watch them carefully for signs of infection -- but that doesn't mean that I'm an easy target for every bacteria that comes along. My roommate's daughter brought colds home from school a couple times this winter. My roomie caught them, but I didn't. That's without taking any special precautions. The doctors tell me that if I should catch a cold or flu, I'll probably feel it longer than most people but that's about it.

So much of it depends on Dan himself: the strength of his immune system, and how his body responds to the drugs and surgery. There isn't a "one-size-fits-all" prescription for how it may go for him. Or what lifestyle changes he may or may not have to make. I know that my surgery was relatively much easier and less invasive than his, and so it's not a completley fair comparison from my experience to his (or what his will be). But every day that passes without signs of rejection is a good one, and increases the chances that he'll make a great recovery.

I'll be pulling for him over here from the sidelines. Get well soon, Dan. I'd love to have you back here on the Mane.

It's pretty normal to get some Graph/Host disease when doing transplants. The prednisone takes away bodies ability to make swelling and reactions to allergies etc but also can weaken immune system.

This is probably something the doctors knew would happen and they know how to deal with it.

Things not looking so good according to Crazyhorse himself over at the Mane.

Says the new lungs are damaged because he developed antibodies to reject them. He said his on a list for new lungs, but chances are slim.

Good Luck CH

Things nots so great on the transplant front. I Have devloped antibodies in the new lungs.

Im rejecting the new ones. I am on the list for new lungs. But due to the ABs the chances are slim.

Not that it makes any difference, but is CH a Broncos fan or a Chiefs fan? I'm just curious. I'm assuming he is a denver fan, judging by his username and the fact that he frequents the Mane.

Still alive and kickin. There have been a lot of complications however. But over all, things are moving in a positive direction.

Bad news is I found out that I have developed an air pocket in one of the lungs. This means I will have to have a chest tube put in to drain off the air.

I am told it's not uncommon and will only set back my recovery a few days which has already been excessively long.

Here's an update from CH himself at the Mane:

Hey Donk fans. Hows it going for football fans of the most competetive team of the Chiefs for the last 40 years?

Quick update.

My lungs have clouded up again like thier is some water on them. I have been taking higher doses of prednisone to see if that helps. I go for my second x ray tomorrow. They took one Thurs after a couple days of treatment with the pred. Thet said they didn't really look any better, but didn't look any worse. So they wanted to wait till tomorrow to give the pred a little more time to work. I scared as as hell.

My strength seems to be holding up ok. Maybe getting better, so that is a good sign. But Pred. seems to give you a boost anyway in the strength and motivation department.

I seem to have had a lot of complications with this surgery. I am beginning to wonder if I'll ever get out of this place.

The wife has been great. She's here every day. And my son is home trying to hold the business together doing the work of 3 people. Which is starting to lose ground pretty quick. Without my support around me I wouldn't be who I am today and I'm damn thankful for it.

Anyway, all you can do is try to keep a positive atitude, work hard on your rehab and don't give in. So I'm doing that.

So that's the latest.

Still in the step down unit from ICU. Looking to dig my way out.

Love you guys.

Breathing on "room air" at rest today. Made 10minutes with elevated breathing and heart rate. Laying on my back of course. If I so much as raised my arm above my head I would have struggled to keep up. But, it was 10 minutes with no support.

I have a long way to go for endurance. As for strength, I can barely sit up in bed without getting out of breath with oxygen support. But stil felt good not to be hooked up to the hoses and running under my own power. Funny how much strength and endurance you lose laying in bed hooked up to machines for 3 months.

I can barely stand.

But.......I feel like I'm finally taking my 1st steps to my come back. With the complications It's been a long time coming. And anything can happen at any time to set me back. But we're moving forward. Also walked on a treadmill at .5 fo 5 minutes. The O2 was cranked pretty high but I made it.

This is all very good news, Mr. CrazyHorse. Well, I know it's difficult right now and you are still quite weak, but all-in-all, it's good news. The treadmill work is particularly heartening (in more ways than one). Your positive attitude is vitally important and inspiring, as well. You'll get there, I'm sure of it.

I know that your overseers will make certain that you pace yourself during your recovery. But, although it's important that you push yourself ... make sure it's not too hard and not too quickly. The healing process requires time as well as effort. Keep fighting, get plenty of nurse hugs, and good luck.

Great. Keep up the good work. What you are describing reminds me a lot about my time after the big heart attack two years ago. Man, I felt like a 111 year old. No breath strength, and no body strength. What's more it felt like it was how I was gonna be the rest of my life. It makes you real depressed. I frequently broke into tears when trying to take a recommended walk. The point is don't give in to that thought. Things will be much more normal as you rehab.

Breathing on "room air" at rest today. Made 10minutes with elevated breathing and heart rate. Laying on my back of course. If I so much as raised my arm above my head I would have struggled to keep up. But, it was 10 minutes with no support.

I have a long way to go for endurance. As for strength, I can barely sit up in bed without getting out of breath with oxygen support. But stil felt good not to be hooked up to the hoses and running under my own power. Funny how much strength and endurance you lose laying in bed hooked up to machines for 3 months.

I can barely stand.

But.......I feel like I'm finally taking my 1st steps to my come back. With the complications It's been a long time coming. And anything can happen at any time to set me back. But we're moving forward. Also walked on a treadmill at .5 fo 5 minutes. The O2 was cranked pretty high but I made it.

The post I have been waiting for :)

Energy.:)

I'm very short on it. Reheab is going to be a long road. Something as simple as standing in place for even 2 minutes brings my breathing to it's max and my heart rate to about 140. Thats a long way from walking across a room, or bending over. When you finally get there, then you have forever to go still to walk up an incline or lift something.

Motivation and energy are at a premium right now.

Im not complaining, but I still dont see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Right now I just put my head down and keep grinding, and every now and then raise my head to see a little progress. I'll get there.

Positive thoughts you guys have chipped in have been plenty. Thanks.
