    I'm good. Sore but getting stronger every day - I had my first trip to the hospital transplant clinic first thing this morning (need to go every day for the first few weeks) and was able to manage without using a wheelchair at all. Was there for three hours so needed a nap when I got home.

    Everyone is really happy with my kidney and I saw so many staff from dialysis who were so lovely and full of hugs and just seemed so genuinely happy for me.

    I'm finding some of the medication side effects a bit of a challenge to get used to - especially the mood effects of the steroids but knowing it's coming from the meds helps in a way.

    I got the info I need for where to send a letter to the family of my donor. I'm not sure what I'm going to say or how to let these people know what their generosity in a time of such tragedy has given me but I'm grateful to have the opportunity to reach out to them.

    DH and the kids are going well, big two are back at school today and DH said DS2 has been a happy little offsider today - checking the sheep and crops. I'll talk to them all tonight 😊.

    I remember watching a movie (based on a true story) years ago called "Nicholas' Gift". It has Jamie Lee Curtis as the mother of a boy who dies while on holiday. They decide to donate his organs. It had such a profound effect on me when I saw it and that was the moment I knew that if I could, I would donate my organs. I tell everyone and anyone who would ever be in the situation of giving consent.
    @misskittyfantastico the fact you want to write a letter to the family and acknowledge the gift they have given you is marvelous. Tell them how a new kidney means you can kiss your babies goodnight every night for a long time to come, how not having to be on dialysis anymore will change your life forever, how the energy you have from having a functioning kidney means you can now do more things with the kids without getting so tired (although at the moment this may not be quite true ). I am sure they will be grateful and happy to know that they have saved the life of at least one person. Maybe your kids could also write a short thank you letter/draw a picture as well so they can say thanks to the people who saved their mum's life

    Wow what a lovely story! So happy for you, I hope your recovery goes smoothly and your body adjusts to the immunosuppressants well. I have a child also waiting on a kidney transplant so I love hearing such positive stories of transplants going well x

    I got out on Sunday and yes very nice to be out of hospital - I'm there every day at clinic but apart from that I just rest and heal and bubhub (I'm so going to be on the busiest user list!)

    Apart from the insanely amazing change of life this kidney has given me, I just keep having all these little happies like:

    1. I can drink as much fluid as I want! More than 1/2 a cup of tea all morning? You betcha! On dialysis I was always thirsty. Always. My brain still stops and goes can I have this drink of water? How much have I had already? The enormous (well regular sized mug for normal folk) milo I just drank was so darn good and I had it with....

    2. Two fun sized milky ways. Chocolate. How I have missed thee. And pineapple and mango and stone fruit. When I got out of hospital there was a beautiful, big pineapple sitting on the bench and I nearly cried.

    3. I can swim again. All DS1 wants to do on the holidays is go swimming with me again. I can have baths too!

    4. No tubes. I have no tubes hanging out of my body. I can move and roll without thinking of them and protecting them. My body feels free.
