Judy goes home today! Excited to share this with you, such news does not come without apprehension and fright.
After undergoing a kidney transplant on March 12th, ironically her surgeon’s birthday, her progress is delightful! Besides having to maintain a minute strategizing of her body, mind and soul through insulin shots, pain medication and immuno-suppressant drugs, her attitude is upbeat and anxious. I do not blame her. Eight days in a hopital environment is plenty! Although her overall care was excellent at UMASS (University of Massachusetts), her 40+ years of diabetes knowledge and stubborn independence will blossom once again. I believe. I am proud of her.
Until next time, I remain a big sister.
