The Birthday Dinner: This year we played it low key. Did have Dale & Jan Yonkin over for Sunday dinner the day before the 9th. That in itself was a wonderful re-uniting: Liz had never met Dale or Jan and we had a grand time telling stories and getting re-acquainted. Will have to see them more regularly.
The Birthday of Mordechai the Miracle Kidney: Again low key. My thoughts are that the first 5 years are monumental and deserve recognition. Now I am thinking that 10 years, 15 years, and 25 years will be the BIG Birthdays to celebrate... kind of like wedding anniversaries.
Transplant Clinic Appointment: Liz & I went in for clinic visit on March 10th. Dr. Lewis again reported that I am doing great! "You got a gang-buster kidney!". Creatinine is perfect, etc. etc. We are happy and I am relieved. On the way home I realize that I always get quite anxious and edgy the week or so before my appointment. Then, afterwards I am in a very good mood for days.
For example, BP the next afternoon is 110/60.
Next blood work scheduled for June and next appt for March, 2016
Toast with Water! Oh yeah, and today is World Kidney Day!
