Today marks eight weeks since my donor surgery. I went for my first get back into shape/training hike two days ago. It felt good to be out. However, due to my previous lack of activity I was definitely winded earlier than I should have been for some portions of the trail, but I managed to keep up with my hiking partner, Rob. I was also very, very sore in the aftermath of the hike.
Other than that, there’s not a lot to report. I’m still feeling better and better. I’m hesitant to call myself 100% back, but I think I’m very close. I was tempted to call my coordinator yesterday and tell how good I was feeling, but I didn’t.
