So it’s the last day with 2 kidneys. I did my best to eat properly last night. Went out to eat with my parents, Tom, and my wife. We ate at long horn around 5pm. I had some pork chops and mashed potatoes. From what I’ve read, that should be a decent meal. Looked like softer white meats and the like were a preferred diet pre-operation. It seems that having white meats and avoiding fruits/vegetables and fiber are the best ideas to avoid post operation constipation. I guess the last thing I would want would be to have to push with the wounds.
I feel like I’m in a state of contentment. Like the eye of a storm. It has been so hectic lately and this weekend and today have just slowed down. My wife has let me just relax and take it easy at home, work let me take off a little early… Just nice and easy times.
I want to say thank you to everyone who has been praying for my family these past few days. I have had so very many people coming up to me and telling me about it. Entire churches took time to pray for us and our doctors. It means so much to me, and I thank you all!
I guess it’s time to get ready to hop in the shower so I can make my 5:30 arrival time! I am really excited to do this! To be able to help out my brother is a great honor and privilege.
