Overcoming the most major crisis so far in his life, my brother is back home at last. It's been more than a month since he had his kidney transplant operation last May 11th in Cebu and now he is back ready to face the next stage of his life armed with a new kidney given by a kind individual. After the actual transplant there were scary moments for all of us because the new kidney did not function as expected by his doctors. Eventually the new transplanted organ came up to life and was functioning well since then. All tests came back normal so after three weeks in the hospital my brother was discharged. They stayed a few more weeks in Cebu because his doctors were still monitoring him closely but eventually he was given the go signal to go home to our hometown in Maasin City. Now ready to face his life with a new sense of normalcy, I bet he'll be missing those two days a week rendezvous with the dialysis machine. Take note that it's been a year since my brother started having his dialysis and that was last May 2009 while him and his family had their vacation here in the USA. Now those harrowing days are gone.
Thank you once again to all our family and friends who offered their help though their prayers. Our family is very thankful to God for hearing all our prayers. I would like to specially mention our parents for their love and support all throughout this crisis. With strength on our faith armed with prayers, we came out victorious.
