    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.

    Amazing!! So nice to see how much it's changing your life & your families, must be such a big relief for all of you. Your story has definitely touched me enough to tell those around me I want to be an organ donor.

    hi misskitty, I know you can certainly tell this thread has been life changing for you, (and we are all celebrating with you), but I think truly, this thread has been life changing for many people. I know I have always wished to be an organ donor, but many others will perhaps also become organ donors. also your strength and courage throughout this horrid ordeal, has been inspirational and given us all an example of wonderful human spirit. you have still had time to listen and give support and encouragement to others. From my heart. God Bless you and your husband, and your sweet children. marie.

    Oh Marie. God Bless you. You have brought a tear to my eye.

    All my levels are still really good and the transplant team are really pleased.
    I had my 40 staples out on Wed but a little bit of the wound opened up while I was home so I quickly stuck it back together with steri strips! Currently sitting in the transplant clinic waiting while the kids spread some "sunshine" around to hospital so will see what they say about it.
    But really all couldn't be going better. I just feel so happy.
