Discharged 1 hour before Mark Thomas' party!

Mark was discharged yesterday with a PICC line in place in order to administer the remaining doses of steroids. He will have Home Health come and assist with changing the dressing on his line. He is scheduled to see the Transplant Team at UK tomorrow. Upon his discharge, his creatinine was back down to 1.2. We are thankful that all seems to be well with the kidney and are extremely thankful that Mark was discharged and returned home about an hour before Mark Thomas' birthday party! We are blessed with a wonderful family who all pitched in Friday night to take care of Mark Thomas and finish all the party preparation. Thanks to our family, Mark Thomas' party was a huge success! Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers!

What a blessing for the three of you to be together to celebrate the birhday of your son.......so good to see your update. I continue to think of you and to submit Mark's name at our church for prayer.......and I pray, as well, for no rejection. I check your blog periodically for updates......

Hi there....
So happy for you and your family. My hubby had his kidney transplant in May this year. He is doing well.

Informative blog. Thanks for sharing your experience with fellow readers. A major barrier to kidney transplant between genetically non-identical or non-matching patients lies in the recipient's immune system response. Which tends to treat the transplanted kidney as a 'non self' and tries to reject it. Nowadays drugs are available to counter this. Source: Singapore kidney transplant
