Transplant update day 5

I couldn’t update anyone because of my condition so I posted updates from my family:

Maritess, “As you all know my sister had a kidney transplant done this pass Tuesday and thanks to all of your prayers, the surgery went well. Unfortunately her kidney is still sleeping and she had to do dialysis again, which she was not very happy with. The doctor’s were concerned due o her kidney’s not working as of yet that she had to do a biopsy on Wednesday, labs on Thursday, and a scan on her condition yesterday. The recovery process is now more difficult because her kidney won’t wake up. The good news is that all her testing and labs came back with good results. The doctor’s had said it can take up to 4 to 6 weeks for the kidney to start getting used to her body chemistry. The doctor’s concern was only because in most cases when the transplant happens with a live donor, it starts functioning immediately. So the only advice they had given us now is to be patient. I spent the evening with Maribel last night to releave Daniel because he has stayed here all week while my mom took care of the boy’s. She is so amazing to me! She truly is a strong woman of faith and tenacity. I admire my little sister! I will keep you posted with more updates. They are going to keep her here in the hospital throughout the weekend and decide on Monday when they are able to release her. My only requests is for more continued prayers that her kidney’s awaken and start functioning soon. We had a full house in the waiting room and I sat there thinking to myself how blessed we are to have family who truly loves unconditionally.”
