Per Aunty Wella Paayas:

- Rhori's appetite came back as soon as he came home (may 3), kept saying "i'm hungry, i'm hungry" to parents despite bolus
- eats adobo, rice, shrimp, baby carrots, chicken, tortillas
- as of may 20, not in isolation anymore, just needs to wear mask when outside
- wounds are healing fast and well
- most labs are normal (even crea and BUN!!), working on stabilizing magnesium and iron levels
- has developed a new sense of energy post transplant, is very active at home and is back to his normal routine
- has urodynamics (procedure to test bladder function) this june 5
- upcoming kidney biopsy this october (ivernight procedure) to evaluate how new kidney is doing
- transitioned to a weekly bloodwork appt instead of twice a week
