Al had his three year check up yesterday. He went downtown to the hospital where surgery took place and the news was great! He is doing great and the doctor said he doesn't need to see him for a year. (This is the longest stretch he's been allowed to go!) he will continue with monthly blood work to ensure his numbers stay stable, and of course he takes his daily dose of anti-rejection meds, but that's all normal for a transplant patient and we are thankful!
In the meantime, dialysis days are a memory that we know will be a reality again SOMEDAY but we are thrilled with each and every day that brings health!!
Here are some pictures, "battle scars" right after surgery:
And, today, the scars are practically invisible, can you see it?
It's below the words "Be a Donor"...faint, barely visible!
In this picture, the scars are even harder to spot, but there are two in the picture, I can see them, can you?
Now, please excuse me while I go put some lotion on, the dry skin in the pictures has me a little disturbed!!
