Kidney Operations

Monday, November 18, 2013

Today was a long time coming for Steve and Tracie.  This is the day that Steve gave the gift of life to his wife, Tracie.

They both went into surgery this morning and one of Steve’s kidneys was removed and placed into Tracie.  We waited for about four hours for Steve to be finished and moved to the recovery room and it was another two hours before Tracie was in recovery.

The surgeries went off without a hitch and both are now recovering.  Steve will be in the hospital for three days and Tracie will be there for up to ten days.  Tracie will no longer be tied to a dialysis machine anymore and that will be great. 

Here is Steve happy to be out of surgery.

It will take six weeks before Steve can go back to work and it will take Tracie much longer before she will have this surgery behind her. 

We all wish them both a full recovery.
