Dear Supporters,

 Am doing much better now. It's been 86 days since the surgery. The surgery was on October 28th 2018, I have been regularly following up with my nephrologist Dr. V. Balaraman. I was hospitalised for two weeks after surgery and then discharged. My mother (kidney donor) was discharged after a week, She is doing fine . As per doctors advice , me and my wife are living in a separate place to avoid infection. Through the month of November we had to follow up with the doctor once in four days. Now weekly once we follow up with the doctor with the lab test results . My diet is normal. I must have three to four litres of water every day. And I have to take my immunosuppressive drugs on time everyday morning and evening.

My gratitude and thanks to Padmini aunty , Mahesh sir and Ravi sir.
I thank all my well wishers in MILAAP  for their support to have helped me get through this tough phase in my life. I thank from the bottom of my heart the MILAAP organisers for their wonderful support to help people in need!

Thank you all
Venkatakrishnan & Brindha
