Saturday Morning

It is Saturday morning. I had my kidney transplant late Thursday night. I was in the ICU most of the day Friday, though they moved me in to a room around 6:00 pm Friday night. They want me to sit up or walk around as much as possible to speed up the healing process.

The new (pre-owned) kidney seems to be working pretty well so far. My urine output was 235 ml on the 11th and 2795 ml on the 12th. They have not posted my numbers for today. My creatinine went from 9.1 on Thursday to 10.3 Friday and the doctor just said it was around 5 today.

So, I have some pain in my right side, but that is to be expected. I hope to keep getting better through the weekend.

Stay tuned for more details.
