    They are very happy with the age of the kidney and it's a fantastic match but it has been taking time for the kidney to "wake up" and begin to function and a scan has revealed a slight issue with one of the vein connections.
    I've also been in quite a bit of pain but have seen the pain management team and we'll hopefully get that under control.
    I can only see DH for the duration of my hospital stay because of the infection risk but will face time the kids when I look a touch less scary!
    I'll have to spend 12 weeks in Perth and have daily blood tests to ensure all my anti rejection medications (that I'll be on for life) are balanced.
    Feeling very emotionally drained which they say is brought on by the medications so lots of tears today.
    DH and my mum are at Wicked with the two big kids right now but will see DH tonight and I'm hanging out for a cuddle.
    Will update you all ASAP 😘😘
    Definitely worth missing Wicked for! Try to get some rest while you can. Are you in ICU/High dependency unit or surgical ward? It can be harder to rest in those high care places because of all the noises etc. Take all the drugs they'll give you for the pain. Hopefully you'll start to feel better in the next couple of days when you're up and mobile. Do they have the means to let you play music? You might find playing some music will give you something else to focus on and hopefully will help with the emotional side of things a bit too.

    Thanks for the update. Hopefully you and your new kidney get acquainted quickly and are firm friends for a long long time to come.

    Thank you for taking the time to update misskitty, you must be exhausted. Wishing you all good things...and a big cyber hug (but not too tight).

    Wonderful news, the recovery sounds pretty brutal but each day will get you closer to such a better life, I'm so freaking excited for you and your family.

    Tick your organ donor card guys, this is the result!
