bump in the road

Mom developed a fluid collection around the new kidney, which caused an "indentation" on the kidney, because of the pressure. The kidney appeared to be functioning well, however the surgeons recommended drainage of the fluid because so much was leaking from the wound. The drain was placed by interventional radiology on Friday 7/18 and seems to have worked. Now we're just waiting to see if the collection reaccumulates.

Mom feels quite well, and is going on four walks a day and has a good appetite.

Mary Jean and Max arrived yesterday from Cedar Rapids. Welcome to Baltimore, hons.

Hon is short for honey, and it's the quintisential Baltimore word. We even have Cafe Hon and Hon-fest.

That's all for today!
