Dad update
Bar Harbor

Saw dad last night. He's doing quite well. They expect to keep him in the hospital for "5-7 days" from Wednesday.

Interesting surgical fact: apparently, when replacing failing kidneys, they don't actually replace, they just add in the "new" one. My dad now has three kidneys!

That is fascinating.

I'm glad it went well! Sometime on Monday I found myself wondering about him and if they'd ever find a donor.

He probably always wanted to be a mutant, anyway. ;)

Did they tell him how much function he had in the old one? You could get him a shirt that says "I have 2.3 kidneys!" or some such. ;)

Welcomes your Dad to the three-kidney-club.
