Today’s Terrific Tuesday post is again going to be a bit different this week.
It’s now been exactly a week since the kidney transplant….. and all is well!
John was discharged on Saturday and is recovering well at home. Pieter remains in hospital* until his blood pressure and one of his levels normalises. It’s nothing too serious, as 99% of what his new kidney has to do, it is doing. Little Johnny (as the transplanted kidney is now known) is doing a great job.
John had a really tough time with post operative nausea but thankfully it is getting daily. He is eating more each day and taking fewer anti-sickness meds. I should know, I’m keeping a chart. As you do.
The feel-good photo for today was taken on 28 November 2012, the day after the operation. As soon as John was taken off the morphine drip, he wanted to go and see his good friend Pieter.
A picture really is worth a thousand words.
*Since writing this post we’ve been told that Pieter will be discharged today!
OH WOW wishing John huge a speedy and safe road to recovery. My 6 year old niece Amy received her new kidney on the 16th October and is also doing well. I’m off to read more now xxxxx
That’s great Maryanne!
What a selfless guy, God bless him and the receiver…
Thank you Daniella
Good feelings for both of them, I send my positive thinking to them, they are beautifiull, it is an admirable real story, the one who gave his kidny is courageous and generous!
Thank you Fleur 🙂
