So grateful for this wonderful news. But don't jump up and down, you'll rattle the "kidney hole" as I refer to it!!

I'm hoping the kidney will grow back. One of the docs said he was looking forward to writing the case report on that one.

All through my surgery and recovery friends or family would always ask "is there anything i can do for you?" how do you answer that? I just needed to deal with this mostly alone and get my bowels and feet moving on my own. No one could do much to help. AND........ because i have a somewhat morbid sense of humor I started using this line on a few people I thought could handle it;

"Is there anything I can do for you or anything you need?" >>>> Can I have a kidney? ..After all you do have two perfectly good ones

The look on their face for a split second always made me feel bad for teasing, and yet i couldnt stop.....whats wrong with me?

A woman who worked at the hospital asked if there was anything she could do for me.

'Can I have one of your kidneys?'

'No', she said. 'l was born with only one.'

Is exactly what you need now. The pie has a special relish once one of your kidneys has tried to kill you.

I had curried lamb kidneys for breakfast this morning.

It might take me a while to get around to the pie.

Congratulations Steve! The pathology report have been the most important report to me, since it pretty much dictates what is the long term treatment plan and what to expect in the future. I believe the worst part is over (perhaps it is the catheter ;) ) Wish you a speedy recovery.

Great news Steve!  You can't cry any more than I did when I got my path report the next morning.  Now you can focus on recovering!

I didn't know I was worried until I read the report and felt a wave of relief.

Weird, eh?

Now that you are a survivor and your little bugger was the same size as mine, I need you to help me with the newbies over the next 10 or 20 years. Are you up to it? Just take it easy for the next weeks and months. No bungee jumping or croc wrestling until next year at the earliest. I waited almost 11 months after my neph to go Water skiing.

I shall be around for a while, no doubt.

Maybe forever. Once a nephrectomy club member, always a member, I guess.

That is indeed good news. Now to just kind of take it easy, mend, and get to feeling better. Oh, and did I mention to take it easy?

Once you are diagnosed and heard the bad news, Stage 1 and grade 2 are two good things to have and you have them both.

Hopefully it's out of your body for good

Now get out there (after you heal up) and celebrate life.  Tears are a pretty normal thing at this point, goes with the territory.

Bless you,
