Got my  laptop now. Using a phone to navigate web boards  is crap.

Thank you everyone for the prayers and well wishes..

 

Got put on the waiting list mid Jan. They say  the average wait time is 2-5 years. Get a call at noon on Valentines day. We get there at 2 PM. Hospital says the operation should be at 8 PM. 8 Comes and goes tell me it will be  at 7:30 AM. Tell me the donor was a 40 year old and by the delay it must have been from out of town.  Go down then  and get put under. Sister told me  ii was done around 10. Don't remember anything  before 4. Have an incision from near my navel  over to the right where they put the kidney in. 

 

Had a foley catheter. That was taken out Thursday. Strange sensation but didn't  hurt. Said the next morning the kidney was producing urine. Sometime it has to be "jump-started.  Had 3  dialyses and 1 long one. That 5 hr one drew 3L of waste. Wednesday night they moved me to the  burn unit because they needed the space in the ICU. and then Friday night up to the renal floor. Can walk to the bathroom, with help of course.

 

My oxygen level was low. put me on a Bi PAP machine for 24 hrs. Pure torture.  Nose and lips total dried out and had swollen nose from  the mask.Hen they put me pn a noisy  high flow cannula and know on a regular cannula. Mighttake me off of it tonight.

Came to at 4.transferred me last night to burn unit since they needed the   Room. 
 

 

 

Looking through the thread, the burn unit is appropriate.  I have seen some of your answers to people's posts here on TBD-TSW. 😁

*
I had a bout of pneumonia and sepsis in late June that put me into dialysis ever since, but at least in December I went from M-W-F down to M-F.  What has been somewhat surprising to medical staff has been the fact I continue to produce urine in good quantities.  I hope for you continued healing and recovery.

Have the 'Salt Police' patrolled your home, ridding you of the demon seasoning? 😈  My daughter-in-law (the RN) did a full house purge of all things that weren't good for my kidneys before I came home.  Farewell, cheese popcorn. 😪
