All seems to have gone well with the removal of Justin's kidney. He has been recovering in his room now for several hours. His family reports that his pain is pretty well controlled. He has had several visitors and appears to be doing well.
Mark's surgery lasted longer than we had anticipated. We got to see him about 5 minutes ago. The Surgeon is hopeful that all went well. After Justin's kidney was placed in Mark's body, there appeared to be difficulty finding a position for the new kidney to allow for optimal blood flow. The Surgeon remains hopeful. However, time will tell. They are keeping Mark in ICU tonight so that they can continually monitor his blood and urine output. They completed an ultrasound of the transplanted kidney and we are awaiting the results now. Please pray that the blood is flowing as it should through the new kidney as this will determine if the transplant will be successful.
