First, the brief update: I'm feeling great! Went in for labs the other day, but haven't gotten them back yet. I feel 100% (and have for a long time), and the only "issue" I have is cosmetic - the 'big' scar on my lower abdomen. My family went to Teddy's the other night for a celebratory dinner, which was fun (and delicious). I'll post the photos when I get them.
So, how have I been rocking one kidney in the last year?
Three months after surger, I ran a Spartan Sprint race. It was fun, and really challenging, and I was glad to have my teammates there to push me (sometimes literally!) through the tough spots.
This spring we participated in a National Kidney Foundation Kidney Walk with Teddy and his friends and family (it was clearly a nap-inducing walk).
