Earlier today at work I received a call from UAB, which at first sounded very routine: I was asked if anything had changed in the last few months. Then “Gregory” announced that they had a possible kidney for me, and how quickly might I be able to get to Birmingham? One fillup and obligatory dash to Walmart later, I’m in my hospital room between various tests. So far the docs are very pleased with me, and surgery, if the bloodwork locks me in, is scheduled for tomorrow. One of the first things I did after I left the hospital last year was purchase a laptop to replace my chromebook, and the wireless is strong here. I’ve got a bag of books, so don’t be surprised if I post away during recovery. I am sure things will go well, but if not — it’s been fun reading with you all.
