They're keeping her in the recovery room for another night - she told me what they're looking at but I didn't catch the details (I was in a store) she doesn't seemed worried so I wont worry either. She did say her creatinine is 1.5 - I requested a picture - evidence - of her new urination abilities.

Bill, how is Anna doing? Anna, if you're reading this  :clap;  great pic, way to go!!!

I'm on a train right now, I should be in NYNY's Penn station in about an hour. I'll be able to post a pic of the non-uremic Anna this evening once I'm back in Philadelphia. I just talked to her and she was already objecting to the idea of a photo but I pointed out that in her weakened condition she was in no position to fight me off. She has had a shower and her first post transplant cup of coffee - two important milestones on the path to full recovery. I should have a first hand report later today.

Bill is here, I'm using his laptop to post we just ordered pizza for lunch.  I hope to be out of the hospital this weekend, and expect to be bored out of my mind while recuperating so you'll be getting some lengthy posts.  This whole experience has been surreal, and thanks to daily home hemo, I was in the best possible shape for a successful transplant. 

More to come... And thanks for all of the posts and well wishes, they have been great to read even if I haven't been able to post. 

Best,

Anna ( and her new kidney....)

Great news!  Bill, you are the greatest!   And Anna, I am so glad things are going well.   Eating pizza and visiting with Bill---it doesn't get better than that!    Enjoy your time together.  We'll all be here waiting to read all your posts when you are home.  You know we want details!     Sending you my love----rest and recover.   :cuddle; :cuddle;

(quoted from another thread)

All good things must come to an end... On August 15th, my dialysis unit suddenly closed...Imagine my surprise when I was called by the new unit, told that I was a new patient permanently, New Dr, new nurse and that they did not support solo home hemo.  I could either find a new unit or come in center, either way they would shut off my supplies, effectively attempting to end my optimal dialysis care plan of the past 10 months.

Anna (and her new kidney...), I've just got one thing to say:

GOOD ANSWER!!!

Anna you need to name your new kidney.  We can help!

How about "Obama 08"  So you will never forget!  (Although I did not vote for him)

Please have a HUGE glass of ice cold milk for me.  Walk Walk  walk!!!!   Keep moving.

At great risk to my own health and safety I took this picture while Anna was laughing with food in her mouth. If I turn up missing check Anna's whereabouts.

Anna looked great, in a good mood and is hearing that she may go home this weekend! After I left I received an email that instead of getting to rest Physical Therapy showed up and made her do stairs.

Good one Rerun - I was thinking Hope but the urine factory is a boy so Obama '08 is a better fit.

Congratulations Anna.    :bandance;

So glad you got a kidney and eveything is going well.
Since I am predialysis, I am still peeing, so can't completely relate to all the excitment about it.
I hope your new kidney lasts for years and years, so you can pee forever.
Best wishes for a speedy, full and complete recovery.
