Minor setback

He checked back into the hospital yesterday. His blood levels weren't changing the way the doctors wanted them to so they did a biopsy to check on things and thought it best to have him at the hospital to give him the necessary meds through an IV. The doctors have said that this is a minor setback and that they like the direction his blood levels are going. 

He convinced them to let him wear his own clothes this time.

They're home!

Home sweet home on Friday, Aug. 28th, 2015. 


Both attended church today wearing their "Happy Socks" from Bishop Brown. Recovery never looked so good! 

Note: Just a reminder to please keep your distance from Sanford. His immune system is extremely compromised to prevent the donor kidney from rejecting. As much as he wants to talk to each and every one of you, it's just not safe. Please don't take offense and help him out by staying a few feet back and don't touch him (no hand shakes, hugs, etc.). 

We're so grateful for all the love and caring we've all received during this amazing process. Thank you.

Day 3

Here they are! Bob's up and about. Sanford is restricted to his bed for a little while because they just took his port out. 
Both are looking good!

Up and walking!

He was up and walking last night, but I was too tired to post it. He says he feels this surgery more than the last one, but that the pain is still minimal. He and Bob walk to each other's rooms to visit :)
Cruising down the hall. 
Bob came by for a visit.

Sanford and Bob are both in their rooms recovering nicely. The kidney is already working!
