Thanks for all the good wishes and prayers. We made it through the first round of tests and we are waiting for them to schedule the stress test. We were given a lot if information to digest and we were both exhausted last night. The side effects of anti-rejection drugs are pretty scary and I know Dale is kind of trying to balance it all out in his mind. It would free him up from the dialysis and the diet would be better but the medications come with a chance of diabetes, nausea, lymphoma, melanoma, infection, and a host of other not so nice things. They have to be taken for the rest of your life or you lose the kidney. The actual surgery is the least scary part for him.
The traffic was terrible and at one point we actually managed to drive 8 miles in 45 minutes. It started pouring between Greenvile and Rockwall and my windshield wipers staged a protest and just quit for about 15 minutes. I was thankful for the mini-van in front of me that gave me tail-lights to follow till the wipers started working again. They have done this off and on for awhile and also refuse to turn off sometimes. They have NEVER done it when I have been near a mechanic of course. Mechanics and medicine – I’ll stick with computers.
