Going home today 9/7/17

Kidney from my younger brother 11 days ago. My surgeon found plaque in my vien and it complicated the surgery. 2 days later, i had emergency discovery surgery to locate and stop a leak. I lost 1.5 L of blood and my insistion was enlarged. All along, my donor kidney was top notch. Creatinine in the 0.8 to 1.1 range. Im dumping urine like a crazy. Its been a crazy ride so far. Getting discharged today. Toughest part of it all has been getting my bowels back online. From nothing to super flow. Excited to get back home. So far my meds seem pretty low due to a perfect match. Taking 1 Myfortik and 3 Prograph twice a day. Also on Cumadon because of clotting found, but that and the balancing meds are only supposed to go for a month.
