Hooray! Dr Becker reports that she was able to establish a fistula and did not have to fall back to the graft option (this is better!).

So now the fistula has to be watched and mature into a "buttonhole" for dialysis purposes. This should take 4-6 weeks.

In the meantime, Sabine and I are at the cottage and she is taking a nap after a very busy (and stressful days),

Thanks for the prayers and positive thinking that guided Dr Beckers hands and the teamwork of anesthesiology and nursing!

Love to all!

p.s the first picture is BEFORE surgery. The second is Sabine taking her first walk after surgery with her nurses and the last pic is Sabine getting dressed and ready to head home!
