Nap time

Well, I just got back from ultrasound. My kidney function numbers are a little off today and I'm having some swelling around my new kidney, so they wanted to ultrasound me and make sure everything looks good. They want to rule out a lymphocele around the kidney. If the ultrasound looks abnormal then I'll have to have a consult with the kidney docs before being discharged. If it's normal, I may get to go home today.

The pain is much better today! I'm only needing oral pain meds every 6 or so hours. I keep thinking I have food stuck up under my lip, but it's just my stitches. They feel very weird to me. The ENT docs and lung docs have seen me today and both agree that things look good in those areas.

I'm thinking it's nap time since I didn't get but about 2 1/2 hours of sleep last night. Hopefully when I wake up, the ultrasound results will be back.

Thanks so much again for your thoughts and prayers. You guys are absolute best!!!
