Katie and Mindy are doing great!!!
The Doctor came in and told us that the surgery went wonderfully. Katie's new kidney is working great and producing urine like crazy. The doctor and nurses seem to be very pleased. Katie is still pretty sedated but I have talked with her and she is doing well. They gave her a hand held sort of push button remote that she can push for additional pain medication. (Drugs on Demand:) They have told us that it may be a rough night trying to sleep with the pain and monitoring. Please pray that she can sleep well. She is doing a great job at that right now as I'm watching her sleep while I type. Anyway I thought that you would like to know a funny story about Katie. Seeing that she is sleeping I have some time. If you know Katie you know that she has to be the most like able person alive. Always happy and smiling even when she isn't feeling that way inside. Also she is got to be one of the toughest people I know physically and mentally. For example yesterday at one of our many appointments we were meeting with the surgeon. This would to most people be a scary and serious conversation. When the surgeon was done explaining what was going to happen he asked if we had any questions. Katie said "yea I was wondering what happens if you drop the kidney when you are carrying it from Mindy to me?" What a great question to lighten the mood. By the way if you are wondering the kidney would be ok they just have to clean it and sterilize it if this would happen. So that is about it for now. Tomorrow they are planning on having Katie get up and walk two to three times throughout the day. Maybe she will be back in blogging form sometime tomorrow. (she is a little better at doing this than I am)
