Up and Out

I reached a couple of post-transplant milestones today.  The JP fluid drain was finally removed from the incision site, and the stent that had helped the surgeons connect my new kidney to the bladder was pulled out of... well, let's just say out of ME and be done with it.  Both procedures were relatively painless (emphasis on "relatively") and, thanks to Nicky's constant care over the past month, there were no signs of any infection or similar difficulties.

My next clinic visit is September 4, at which time I hope to get the all-clear to resume driving.
