While out and about doing my last moment prayer partner shopping because of my inability to do so for so long, I had to make a stop at the truck stop at 2nd and Charles. Never a better Frappé. . . . . . #2ndandcharles #coffee #frappé #prayerpartner #shopping #secondandcharles #bookstore #chuckstop

Well, yesterday I can say I didn’t like the way she looked because she still had kind of sunken eyes and dark circles and she just didn’t look great so I was nervous still. Today she looks considerably different and when we went to her follow-up appointment, her nephrologist said things are going really well, blood pressure is beginning to get stabilized, heart rate also getting there (it’s often been very high), and he thinks that things are looking really good. she’s feeling a little better. She just gets tired here and there. she’s getting there. The water intake is so crazy since she (up till a couple days ago) was putting out more than she was taking in (at one point she drank up to 200 oz). It’s finally beginning to taper, and for this Mom, I think maaaybe I can stress a little less. Thank God. . . . . . #kidneytransplant #esrd #kidneydiseaseawareness #kidney #transplant #beaumonthospital #beaumonthealth #water #miracle #nephrologist #nephrology #thankgod

I’ve never seen a cut rose flower begin to bloom. Perhaps we’ll get a rose bush? (Though I cannot imagine it would actually happen) That would be quite a miracle considering all the things which transpired in this last year-and-a-half. . . . . . #dialysis #kidneydisease #esrd #kidneydiseaseawareness #kidney #transplant #kidneytransplant #rose #bloom #rosebud #miracle #awareness #beaumonthealth

Committed to her health. She’s had a little bit of a bump in her recoup and her discharge has been delayed. We’re hearing she may not be released until at least tomorrow. We’re being positive but would love to get her home so she can heal in her own environment. Just keep praying. . . . . . #recovery #kidney #kidneydiseaseawareness #pray #kidneytransplant #committed #warrior #donor #transplant

My beautiful daughter, @calah_elisabeth seeing off her grandmother, @seamstresstc, after grandma got her release papers, and now she’s at our home to recuperate. We’re not sure of Calah’s homebound timeframe, as they’re trying to get her BP under control. But otherwise she’s doing great! GFR (kidney function) yesterday was 70%, while, for so long it was recorded @ <5% function (100% is obviously perfectly healthy level). Her creatinine is between 1-2 (normal female range is 0.5 to 1.1), while that number's been averaging between 9-10 for countless months (it was 15+ at her diagnosis); those numbers are so very exciting to me (and to those who understand kidney function), and I've longed to see them improve. My Mom's kidney, at almost 70 years old, is doing very well for my daughter, and it shows because she extracted over 24 liters of liquid (to put it nicely) before her Foley cath was finally removed this morning. While we have a lot to learn and the bumps are not over, we're grateful for the selfless sacrifice my Mom made for my daughter's chance at having a near – normal life. Thank you, Mom, you have no idea what it means to me, and I pray for blessings in your life that you've never known. I love you. . . . . . #kidneyawareness #nomoreesrd #kidneytransplant #kidney #foley #daughter #gfr #mother #love #creatinine #thankful #homebound #beautiful #calahstrong #grandma #blood #bloodpressure #grandmother #warrior #sacrifice
