Here we go.

I just wanted to let you all know that tomorrow is the big day.

In the morning my mom and I are going into surgery.

It’s finally here and we are both ready.

I can’t wait to be through with dialysis. Actually, if all goes as planned, tonight was my last treatment. Giant Yay! Sprinkled with cartwheels! Yay. Yay. Yay.

I am sorry that these past several weeks have been boring around here. But, I’m excited just thinking about feeling good again, so it won’t be boring for too much longer.

Thank you all for your concern, for your wonderful emails, for your patience, and your prayers. I really appreciate all of it. 

My mom wanted to thank you, too.

From my mom……

P.S. I’ll try to let you know how we are doing through twitter. Big hugs.

UPDATE: The surgery went fantastic. The doctors couldn’t be happier with how we are both doing. My mom’s kidney started working right away which they don’t always do. Sometimes it takes a little while for everything to kick in. It was doing so well that I was also able to have the dialysis catheter removed before I came home. Thank goodness. I couldn’t wait to have that thing taken out. I’m home now recovering and so is my mom. She’s doing great, too. We are just both very sore. You know, when I had my first kidney transplant almost 19 years ago, I stayed in the hospital for almost two weeks. But this time I came home after four days. Just amazing. It’s really good to be home. Anyway, I just wanted to give you a quick update. Thank you all again for leaving such wonderful messages. We’ve both enjoyed reading them and it’s made the last few days even brighter.

I know i am a little late with my comment!! Congrats! I am so happy for you. My father was on Dyalisis for six years. Feb. 5 2010 i donated a kidney to him. People may think it was the best day for him, but really it was the best day for me. I know your mom feels the same. I am so happy that your surgery went great. Those kidneys can be pretty subborn.
