My mother came over yesterday and she got to see me for the first time since the day after the surgery (when she went home).


She cried. She said I looked amazing. She was a little shocked when I showed her my massive incision site. Apparently, she has a small (maybe 2 inch) incision below her belly button. Hers is also horizontal – mine is vertical.  I was shocked at how non-invasisve this whole thing was for her (relatively). She was home in two days, is pain free now, etc. It makes me think that more people who want to donate should talk to those who have.


My mother is more overwhelmed with joy saving my life than she is upset (at all) about the whole surgery. It’s a beautiful thing.


Separately, I slept like a baby last night. I was able to get at least a little comfortable in bed for the first time since the surgery.

    David – You look amazing! Mom looks a little thin and could probably use a tan:)
