Gavin did great throughout the night. His kidney functions are now normal for the first time in his life. His BUN (blood urea nitrogen) level has amazingly dropped from 77 yesterday (before surgery) to 4 today. His creatinine level has dropped from 2.8 to 0.2. The surgeon said the transplant went perfectly.
Jill continues the road to recovery and has been able to walk a few times. As you can imagine, Gavin’s good news really helps with her recovery.
It has gone amazingly smooth so far and I couldn’t have envisioned it going any better. It has been good news on top of good news, and all of Gavin’s doctors and nurses have been wonderful.
Gavin now needs his body to adjust to a new working kidney. But right now, I couldn’t be happier about how things have gone to this point. Thanks for all the support throughout our journey.
