We cannot believe it's been six months. We are still humbled every day. PK has been struggling this week with her first "typical" sickness - a bad cold and an ear infection. Last night James and I said how much harder even the little sicknesses are for children and parents who are still hooked up to machines at home. We reflected on the fact that we were very much prepared for her to need dialysis at home and how much more that would add to any sickness.
PK started blood pressure medication to combat her high blood pressure level, a side effect of kidney damage and the fact that her kidneys are still healing. We are praying that this is short term and her blood pressure issues resolve soon.
Thanks for checking in on us. Much love, The Larys
