No news is still no news...
Nothing new is going on. SIGH...
Neil sees his nephrologist this week for his regular checkup. He had his blood drawn this morning.. please pray his Creatinine hasn't gone up enough to start dialysis. He still feels really good so I would be surprised if that was the outcome of the appointment this week... but I never know what to expect at these appts.
Next week is the 'big' appointment with OSU.. the one that we waited and waited on this spring when we found out OSU and UHC were no longer in network with each other. Anyway.. now that we're back with OSU, I honestly haven't been 100% satisfied. Our coordinator is hard to get in touch with and the 1 potential donor isn't sure the next step as she's not had luck getting in touch with said coordinator. I'm really looking forward to next week's appointment though because we will meet with the surgeon AND get a NURSE coordinator assigned... the coordinator we've had so far isn't a nurse.
A good friend of mine, who is also a kidney transplant patient, sent me this link today on a new study on PKD... very interesting. Thanks Sue!
Please keep my other blogging friends in your prayers. Bruce has had quite a few complications while waiting for a transplant. He just recently found out he 'might' have a live donor as 2 people came forward to get tested! YAY! And his brother, Sean, has his transplant scheduled for Dec 29th.
Thanks for reading, commenting and praying. Your loving thoughts ARE appreciated!
