We are two days since transplant and things overall are going well! Yay Blakers! This picture was taken the morning after transplant. That is a breathing tube down his throat. Wednesday morning, he was not a happy camper and the nurse told the doctor that he either needed to be sedated or taken off the breathing tube because it was a not a good situation. They decided to pull it out and he was much happier.
Wednesday he was pretty sleepy and comfortable. They were giving him enough drugs to keep him pretty out of it. On Wednesday night, we face-timed with Jenna, Brody and Bowen. Jenna and Brody have had a really busy week and were so excited to tell us all about it. Bowen, not so much. He saw Blake and instantly started crying. Which made me start crying. That twin connection is no joke people.
So, this creatinine number is very important. Basically, it measures your kidney function. Like the game of golf, you want a low number. On Tuesday night, that number was at 5.4. By Wednesday morning, it was down to 2.8, which the doctors were thrilled with. Thursday morning, it was all the way down to 0.6. That is a VERY good sign about the kind of things Blake's new-to-him kidney is doing!
