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 :)

Bob came by for a visit.

Update #3

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

Update #2

They have successfully removed Bob's kidney and they're prepping it for Sanford. Bob is doing well and he should be in recovery in about 15 minutes and he'll stay there for an hour. Sanford's surgery will probably be another couple of hours. 


They've taken him back and from phone call updates, we know Bob is also doing well. 
He made the crazy face.

Surgery #2

Sanford and his donor, Bob, on their way to register for the transplant surgery. Bob should go in for surgery at 9:00am and Sanford at 11:00am. I'll update as I have more information. 

As always, thank you for your continued support, good vibes, and prayers.

Transplant Update

The transplant surgery has been moved up because he's been healing so well, and because they didn't fix his second hernia. The new surgery date is August 25th. 

Post surgery he'll need to be careful about being around anyone who is sick. We all know he's a talker and very social, so please help him out by keeping a distance if you or someone you live with is sick and don't be offended if he doesn't stop to chat to groups of people. He'll still be fine to work and plans to be at church, but will avoid large groups of people. 

Thank you again for all of your prayers and love. Keep it up, it's working!

Recovering at Bear Lake

He's out of the hospital and recovering nicely at Bear Lake. He's at the hospital in Montpelier receiving his second out-of-hospital dialysis treatment right now. He's been feeling great and he's just been taking it easy sitting on the beach.
