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.
