When people stop by and see me they are amazed at how well I look and how great I am doing. I felt the very same thing when I saw Katherine on Thursday! We both look and feel great.
Mom and I stopped over at her house so my mom could meet her, Tod and her parents. It was really nice. We have certainly created a special bond. We are equally excited to hear how well each of us is adjusting post surgery. I am really amazed at how well we can both get around, stairs and all! It hasn’t even been 2 weeks and we are feeling really great!
As if that wasn’t enough, Katherine’s numbers in her bloodwork have been fantastic! Praise God – we prayed for a super kidney and I think she got one! We both have follow-up appointments scheduled for Monday and that will be the first since we left the hospital that I will hear what my numbers are.
Such an amazing experience to be a part of a real life miracle. It’s something you can’t quite explain. I have a friend who I met through this whole thing, and she feels the same way about it. I can’t help but wonder if more people had a giving mindset how it might change the world. I’m not planning on becoming a living donor advocate or anything, but I would definitely recommend it! It truly has been a wonderful experience even from day one.
Here’s a photo of Katherine and I about 10 days after surgery. Amazing!
