All is going very well. All my vital signs are perfect. My blood pressure is good, blood sugar is good, temperature is normal. I still weigh 178. So things couldn’t be better in that regard. I’m going to see my local nephrologist today just to check in. He hasn’t seen me since the transplant and I need to get back with him. He deserves a great deal of credit for working with Dallas Nephrology to keep me off dialysis before the transplant.
Some of you may have known that I owned two motorcycles. However, I have been thinking of the ramifications of an accident with only one kidney and that one being relatively unprotected. Therefore, I sold both of them yesterday. I just decided that I couldn’t deal with the results if I hurt this kidney doing such a discretionary activity. I have many, many other hobbies, so I’ll just concentrate on one of those. Plus, I’m not too far from having to buy Lauren a car. So we needed to clear some space in the garage.
Keith and I continue to get media request. We continue to try to promote organ donation. We hope we are making a difference. I have had several people tell me that they have signed up to be organ donors through Donate Life Texas. There is a link on the blog to go to their site. I encourage you to do that.
Keep us all in your prayers. We continue to pray and hope that things continue to go well.
I’m back working full time and being a full time dad; taking the kids to all of their activities, being President of Angelina Youth Soccer, working at church. All is getting back to normal very quickly.
Tomorrow is four weeks post surgery. I’ll try to write something meaningful about my journey on this one month anniversary.
