Although it's my birthday today, we don't have anything special planned for this evening. I wanted to hold off until next weekend because I have to go to the hospital tomorrow for a biopsy, nice present huh? It's kind of a long story but to sum it up, I had a kidney transplant back in December and the last few weeks have shown some inconsistencies in my bloodwork numbers. We need to get to the bottom of it so a biopsy is really the only way to find out what's going on at this point - ugh. I've had four already to date so I know what to expect and it isn't all that pleasant. Oh well, I can't complain; I've been doing great, feeling good, and was fortunate enough to have my sister be my donor match. All in all I'm really, truly lucky and I try not to forget that.
*UPDATE: Good news! Biopsy results are back and there's no signs of rejection. I have something referred to as ATN which means the kidney has temporarily fallen asleep?! Nothing too serious but I'm slightly dehydrated so I need to drink TONS of water to wake up the little bean so it can do it's job :)
