Did you know that when doctors do a kidney transplant, they leave the old kidneys in?
Did you know that if you are a potential kidney donor, part of the evaluation includes filling a jug with 24 hours worth of pee?
Did you know that the kidney donor sometimes has to use a "bowel evacuator" before surgery?
Neither did Jana Christy, but she is finding all this out and creating humorous cartoons on her blog to record her journey as a kidney donor for her brother. Her latest entry has her going through a final battery of tests. Fascinating, touching and funny reading.

Thanks to Roger's sister Laura, who told me about it. The blogger/kidney donor illustrates children's books, and her father is an art colleague of Laura's.
