I got a call a day or two after my last post. My donation surgery is on February 13th! I was hoping to do it on Valentine's Day, but oh well.
As it gets closer I get more anxious, but that won't stop me! I am worried about a troublesome, but hopefully minor, tooth abscess. I went for a cleaning last week and apparently the spot on my gum that my tongue has been fiddling with was caused by a HEALTHY piece of air-popped popcorn! I'm on antibiotics now, and I let my transplant coordinator know. She says it should be fine, and since I haven't heard from her, we should still be good to go.
I haven't been eating as healthy as I should, which seems weird. I want my kidney to be in tip-top shape, but I've been falling back into old habits; comfort food. I have been making an effort to move more, but it seems hard to shake the excuses when it comes time to go for a walk.
Work has been really stressful this past week as well; still that's no excuse.
I just need to keep in mind that every day, no every hour, is a new start.
Have a great weekend everyone!
