I wrote this blog entry on January 23, just a few days after I learned that the date of my transplant would be on March 1. I did not want to mention it on my blog until I was already in the hospital and the transplant was complete! Call me superstitious...but if you've been reading my blog for a long time, you'll know that I've had so many situations whereby I was just SO close to getting my transplant and something happened...and it did not come up. For both myself and those that love and/or care for me, it's such a let down knowing that I am so close to getting this transplant and something happens that essentially cancels the surgery.
Well, this time, I decided to keep the surgery date and plans to myself until after the date has come and gone. By the time you read this post, the transplant will have already taken place. I am post-dating this blog post to March 2, 2012: one day after the transplant is to have taken place. This way, I guess you can say that I don't "jinx" myself.
Hopefully everything has went well and my brand new and shiny kidney work well quickly. I'll tell you how it went soon! :)
