I am now ten weeks post transplant. I have been recovering well and my new kidney is working like a champ. It has been a little more challenging to tolerate the anti rejection medications than I had expected, but I think it is getting better now. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity for a normal life when I get past these first few months. I love to be with people so much that it is hard to be isolated, but I am making it. My biweekly visits to the transplant clinic for blood work is almost the extent of my social life. I look forward to going back to work as soon as I am able.

I can hardly believe my transplant was four weeks ago today. I have been released by my transplant surgeon to be seen by Dr. Yang, my transplant nephrologist and my transplant team. My visits to the transplant center continue to be Monday and Thursday mornings for blood draws to make sure the anti-rejection drugs I am taking are keeping the kidney safe inside me. Overall, the team could not be more pleased with my progress and the apparent success of the transplant. I am trying to be patient with the affects of the medication and the time it takes to recover.
