Andy is home!!! He is doing wonderfully. Takes 16 different medications twice a day, but he is doing fantastic. Learning about the side effects and how to manage them. We are looking forward to seeing one another over the holidays. We have so very grateful to the family who donated the kidney. We will never be able to pay them back! Many, many blessings to everyone who has so generously supported us. Please offer special prayers for the donor and their family. Merry Christmas to all. Can't wait to see Andy in person over the holiday season!!!
