Wanted: kidney

We aren't there yet, but we are getting close. The Boy's GFR was 58 last time: now it is 34.

We will be talking to the transplant team this week. We need to figure out what to ask them. For example, who would be good candidates? Me. Musical Daddy. Maybe my dad or brother. What happens to people who give up a kidney anyway?

Meatball may have been a good candidate if this were happening 15 or so years from now.

Also, this means that chemo may soon be over. Hopefully, he has gotten enough of it.

Scary, but I know that you guys have been preparing (as much as any parent can prepare for something like this) for awhile now. My thoughts are with you all at this time! I look forward to the update after you speak with the transplant team.

Damn. I really hope the transplant team has good news for you, because this sucks.

I am keeping you guys in my thoughts and continuing to pray for you. I hope that someone in your family is able to donate a kidney; if not, I hope you are able to find someone else.
