I am still recovering, but I am doing well! I already feel a bazillion times better than I did!
The surgery was actually delayed until the 14th because they got in two cadaver donors the day before, and they had to go first. So rather than potentially putting a tired surgeon on my kidney, they just delayed the surgery. I was ok with that!
The hospital said that it was the fastest working kidney they have had! It started working as they were wheeling me to the ICU! Typically, they keep patients for about 5 or more days, but they sent me home a day early because I was doing so well!
I am staying with my mom for a bit at her BnB before I go back home, and have been really good about taking my meds on time and doing what I need to do. Not crazy about the twice a week blood draws, but everything is entirely worth it. I am enjoying my stay at the inn, but I am also excited to be able to get back to doing some more art and such.
New life, so much awesome.
