Wow, this is one of the nicest things to do on TT (helping others)!
A million thanks to eveyone for your thoughts and prayers.

To much to tell and not enough time -
When we first received the call last Wednesday morning approx. 8:10 in the morning I was nervous, confused, and did not know what to do for about five minutes (pack, pay any bills, any last minute contacts, work, etc.

Anyway, we had more than enough time to get to Iowa City.
Kristy and I drove one car and Mom and Michael (son) drove another.
I think we checked in about 11:00 to 11:30.
Kristy had better than 12 hours for tests, doctors, nurses, etc.
The organs apparently arrived sometime around 6 PM (from a young person in Iowa).

The lead "Team Transplant" Surgeon was a beautiful young lady probably in her thirties.
We were told the first incision was made at 12:30 AM and surgery concluded at 7:30 AM
We got to sleep on the floor in a crowded waiting room.

To be continued -
P.S. - If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask!

Thanks Angie for all the very kind posts!
After night one on the floor lol, we did find a family suite in the hospital for $30.00 per night.
Day one was full but understandable.
Patient criteria for immediate family suites (I believe they only had 14) was based on severity of condition.

Hawkeye, it's wonderful to hear that everything went so well! Understandable that she's in pain and that her medications are wonky, but everyone is different and responds differently to such an invasive surgery. Sounds like overall things are great. Good for you and your whole family!

I'm guessing she's at the University? If so, she's in great hands.

The good news is that Kristy "may" get released Wednesday! Her catheter is out and both the Kidney and Pancreas are functioning properly. She may start climbing stairs Tuesday but she is not eating much. Kristy is tired but rightfully so. How beautiful it would be to meet and give thanks to the family of the young person who lost their life so Kristy may lead a normal life! And how beautiful it is when your daughter states "I want to help others as they have helped me".

Yes, the miracle happened at the University of Iowa Hospitals right across the street from Historic Kinnick Stadium!

Kristy will not get out Wednesday. She is still experiencing a great deal of nausea. The doctors think it may be associated with the pain medication. Kristy did walk some stairs today. Other than drainage and IV tubes, she is almost home. Her appetite will come back slowly but surely. Kristy loves her weekend breakfasts with Dad. God Bless.
