My_BBOS was released from the hospital yesterday afternoon. She is recovering well and is in my home for the time being.
Her sister is recovering well but I've composed a prayer list regarding her recovery. If you are so inclined, you may pray with us for these requests. We are uncertain whether she will be released today or not.
Thursday Morning Update:
We got good results last evening and the required "poo" was produced so we are expecting that My_BBOS will be released sometime after 1:00 this afternoon. She'll be with my family for a few days until she is able to go spend time with her family.
It is expected that Barbara will be going home on Friday. She is doing spendidly well. The past couple of days she has been experimenting with foods that have been forbidden to her. There are no restrictions on her diet and that is really exciting.
Guys, this is miracle stuff! The kidney is working perfectly in its new home and all of Barbara's "levels" are normal!
Thier mother Doris still isn't feeling well but they convinced her to spend another night with their Aunt. I stopped by to visit with Doris and the Aunt and they semed to be enjoying each other. Doris is still uncomfortable but I think she has rested and relaxed some. It must be incredibly stressful to have one daughter so sick…life hanging in the balance…seeing both daughters go through surgery at the same time…

Wednesday Morning Update:
As of this morning it looks like My_BBOS will not be released today. She is dealing with a great deal of bowel pain due to the disturbance of the bowel from the removal of the doner kidney. They are going to try to motivate her bowel to release some the gas…and they are speculating that tonight might mean additional assistance to get things moving internally. I think she is really ready to be out of the hospital.
Additionally, her mother is not feeling well today and is begging to go home. Nobody want to take her back to the hometown since she is able to stay with a relative here in the city.
Barbara, however, is doing spendidly and we may all really rejoice that George, the kidney, is loving his new home!
