Hospiblogging, Part 5: The Eagle Has Landed

Don't you just love these dramatic headlines?

The First Mate has just arrived at her room, and needless to say, she's way out of it. However, in speaking with the nurse, I found out that she's stable, her kidney function is excellent, and her blood sugar remains at a normal 114 -- without any post-surgical insulin whatsoever. It looks like a great indication of transplant success.

I'll be leaving shortly, as she won't be waking up any time soon from either the anaesthesia or just normal sleep from exhaustion. I'll check in with her nurses tonight from home and stop by on my way to work tomorrow.

Today ... was a great day, folks. Thank you for all your prayers and kind thoughts.

NOTE: I had to post this when I got home, as my wireless connection disappeared around 4:30 PM or so.

UPDATE: Many thanks to Glenn, as well as the many, many others who have commented and/or e-mailed, for the kind thoughts.
