Stanford rocks!

 Our good friend Eric said those words to me this morning. I thought it was a apt blog title for the month anniversary. That's right, one month ago today our lives changed forever. We are so thankful for this gift our family has been given and amazed by God's grace and mercy.

The kidney has definitely woke up, they kept telling us it would happen but now we see it. His ankles are skinny everyday, he relishes the loss of his cankles. He is now off almost all of his blood pressure medications, taking none unless it spikes. He has lost more weight bringing him to a total of 35 pounds so far. AMAZING!

The pancreas has been working good until this week. We aren't sure what is going on, it is frustrating. He took the insulin last night and his blood sugar was still up in the afternoon. It was 145 this morning, which was the highest in the morning since transplant. We are trusting God to work this out.

We are so thankful to God for bringing our family out of the pit and setting our feet on the rock.

We are so glad we ended up at Stanford. It was the right place for us. The doctors have been amazing and the care, par none. We are so impressed by the hospital, their staff and doctors. We love the area even though it is far from home,family and friends. It was definitely worth the wait.

We are so thankful to our family, church family and many friends in this world. There have been so many people praying for us, helping us and just flat out loving us. I want to thank you all by name and shout out but there are so many of you! Someday when it is all said and done.
