Things are looking good

We're home from the hospital. It was a long day but everything went as well as it could. My mother-in-laws new kidney is already working and producing urine which is a good sign. She will be in ICU for several days and we are not in the clear yet but so far...so good. Kory is sore and uncomfortable but should be out of the hospital in a few days.

I'm so thankful for the blessings this family has been given and for the technology that we have that allowed this all to happen. It's going to be a long road but I know we are not alone.
