Both the surgeon and the nephrologist have been by today. They have both been very encouraging. They both say that I’m doing excellent and that my prognosis is very good.
Keith and Kate got home this afternoon. Keith wanted to get home to watch a soccer game with his son. He said he is doing better and better and was encouraged with his progress. Keith and Kate have continued to call and text me on a regular basis to check on my progress. We really are family now…or so it seems. They have just been an absolute delight to experience this with. I really can’t imagine the bond that we will have for the rest of our lives.
I get to go home tomorrow. It will be a long day. Get my catheter and main line out in the morning. I’m sure I will have meetings with the coordinator and the nutritionist as well. Have to get all the drugs from the pharmacy. I’m sure mom and I will be tried when we get home.
Looked at my incision today the the mirror. It is much bigger than expected. At least 8 inches.
Sheila, Lauren and Allison are almost home. Sheila didn’t want to leave. I think the girls were about ready. There is only so much hospital that little girls can stand.
I can’t say enough about my medical team. I’ve seen more doctors than I knew existed in one place. They are all very patient and caring. The nurses and techs at Baylor are also awesome. The care so much. The are will to do anything to make you as confortable as possible. It gives you much faith in our human race that people take this kind of job so seriously.
Thanks again for all your post. I’m reading them all.
