1 month kidney milestone

Yesterday was my first month with my new kidney, 4 weeks post transplant! It has been a challenging & busy first month, loss of two beloved family members, weekly labs twice a week, weekly clinic visits, ER trips & I started back @ school last night (wasn’t going to but professor totally working with me!) I am resting a whole lot & just so thankful for the energy that I am already feeling. I know I am still healing & adjusting to everything so I am resting just as much as the activity I am doing. It’s a balance I’ve learned thorough my dialysis days but a little more challenging now that I feel better. I look in the mirror and see the person that I looked like before my kidney failure, very thin and that means I’m looking much younger, now my boys are really not going to want me at their schools. I’m very thankful each week that my labs have improved & all the little things that I wasn’t able to do before transplant and only know it will get better with time! I am thankful for the continued thoughts & prayers, I know my covering & protection to truly receive this gift of life is because of this, so my deepest gratitude!

“The love of God is shed abroad in our hearts.” ~Romans 5:5

God is good all the time! Have a blessed day its beautiful outside!
