We did it! 4 months post-transplant and we hit the slopes today. It felt like a HUGE step towards getting back to a new normal. After a few sunny runs in spring conditions Mike was back in the swing. He'll be sore tomorrow, but luckily, Jon's kidney seemed to enjoy snowboarding as much as Mike does. We even got to start the weekend off with a really nice reunion with Jon and his excellent family. Jon reports that other than needing to catch up a bit on his fitness he is 100% recovered - working, playing guitar, doing his thing. I can't even fully describe how happy and grateful I am right now. Thanks to EVERYONE who has helped get us back on track!
