Transplant Day 35

Today is the 5 week anniversary of my kidney transplant. Doing better today. Not that yesterday was bad, but urinating was VERY painful after yesterday's procedure. Today, it's back to normal. 

My BP is normal today, which proves that BP trends are more accurate than single readings.

Jackie and Kevin put in our air conditioners last evening, so it's much more tolerable inside today. I feel bad that I'm unable to do heavy lifting or weeding/gardening, but I know it's for my own good. The heavy lifting restriction is from both the surgery and the fistula. One of the issues last night was that when we turned on the air conditioners, there was a musty smell, which means fungus. So, we sprayed Lysol inside the vent that shoots out the cool air, because fungus in my immune state could be life-threatening.

I posted some interesting articles related to transplants on MyKidney.com.

I also came across a contrarian view to current oil prices (which can be seen here). Time will tell.
