Day 1, Day 2

The actual transplant day went really smoothly (pictures and details coming soon)

Then Day 1 came... NOT GOOD

Day 2 came and Ryan woke up and one of the first things he said was,
"I can already tell... today is going to be a GOOD DAY."

He ate, walked, showered, ate some more, walked some more, slept well,
and between the past two days has lost about 15 pounds of water weight.

It really was a good day.

Sorry for the picture-less and short posts.
Days have been busy and posting hasn't been the first thing on my mind. I will try to be better and hopefully on another good day... we will hear from Ryan.

While I know that there are many of us who love to see the pics and read your updates you're doing the more important things first and that's the way it should be. Ryan is more important that Ryan's blog etc.
Hope things keep getting better!

His 'good day' sounded like the best good day he's ever had through this experience! I'm so glad!!! We hope there are so many more to come.
