Recouperating at home after kidney transplant

I have been home from the hospital for a week now. It is nice to be home. I think each day is a little better than the last.

It’s kinda hard to tell if the pain is better or not. I am able to get around the house better and have been walking on my street. Today I walked from corner to corner, which I think was pretty good!

I am also doing more things for myself — taking my blood pressure and my meds on my own. I have been making my own lunches and breakfast, too. Sarah helped Mark out today and vacuumed. First time ever! I vacuumed for my mom all the time. Kids are different these days. I’m sure Sarah thought it was a big deal, but she did a great job without complaint.

Sarah goes back to school tomorrow, so we will be back into the schedule of school. Mark goes back to work, also. So far, all my blood work has come back great and even though I need to go to the lab twice a week for blood work, the doctor doesn’t need to see me for two weeks. I guess that’s a good sign that he is happy with my progress. My blood pressure has been really good, too. I haven’t had to take blood pressure medicine for three days. Yeah, Michelle’s kidney is supercharged!

Stay tuned for further updates.
